The Best Ghost Book Ever!
October 24, 2013
I LOVED THIS BOOK. 'Mirror of Danger' by Pamela Sykes. Oh how I loved it. I STILL LOVE IT. I read it just a couple of years ago and it still made me cry. (don't worry it has a happy ending.)
Here's why I love it:
Set in England. With English people. They talk Englishy.
Deals with an orphan who is sensitive and has trouble fitting in. She's somewhat old fashioned in her sensibilities. So much so, that her new Victorian ghost friend (who's evil) thinks HEY! You should totally come live in the 1800's with me! FOREVER and EVER.
Guys, I know I hop and rave like a mad monkey about every book I talk about, but this one is the real deal, one of my great great childhood book loves. I loooooooooooooooooove it.
But that's because I love ghosts (esp British ones), anything old fashionedy, and the girl hero is very well fleshed out. I would always cry when she was going through a hard time. This book still makes me cry!
Go find it.
