    Jade and David are house sitting their grandparents' home in Charleston. David is earning money for college, while Jade is trying to sell her paintings at an art festival. Elaine, Jade's best friend, is also staying with them, and David finds another college friend, Matt, who also comes to stay at the house. <BR/><BR/>Everything is going great until jewelry and clothes are either missing or moved. While having a barbecue, hamburgers and vegetables fly suddenly all around them. It turns out that the house is being haunted by Phoebe the ghost. <BR/><BR/>Phoebe was Jade's great aunt who had a tragic life -- her death happened on her wedding day. Phoebe gives Jade the task of finding her and her groom's wedding rings so she can rest in peace. <BR/><BR/>Matt and Jade start to look for the rings but then Jade's ex-boyfriend, Kurt, shows up. Kurt is a real piece of work and starts to stalk Jade. <BR/><BR/>This was a roller coaster of a story and I enjoyed every minute. I liked the relationship between Jade and her big brother. During the course of the story they end the relationship they had as children and start a mature adult sibling relationship. There isn't any blood or guts but the haunting can be quite scary when we don't know about Phoebe. Kurt is very scary, as well, realistically so. There is also a good romantic twist which is fun. So this Halloween or at anytime, do yourself a favor and read LISTEN TO THE GHOST!

    Listen to the Ghost by Beverly Stowe McClure surprised me. I do

    Listen to the Ghost by Beverly Stowe McClure surprised me. I do not usually read paranormal or ghost stories, but I really liked this one. I found it exciting and interesting, but not actually scary. It is written for young adults.
    The ghost, Phoebe, is congenial, but mischievous. She needs the four young people, Jade, Elaine, David and Matt, who are house sitting for Jade and David&rsquo;s grandparents, to help her so she can go to her eternal rest.

    &ldquo;She laughed at herself. What is wrong with me? She thought. I sound like I believe Elaine with her stories of ghosts and spirits and noises in the night. She&rsquo;d say we have a supernatural being in our midst.&rdquo;

    As Phoebe appears to each of them one at a time, they become more aware of her and she eventually becomes almost real to them. She asks them to help her find the wedding rings that were to be used at her wedding on the day she died. The group works hard to help her, but they feel that it is going to be an impossible task after so many years.
    There is a normal storyline in addition to the ghostly one that unfolds as they try to help Phoebe. Kurt, Jade&rsquo;s former boyfriend, begins to stalk Jade and they have to deal with that situation along with the ghostly event.
    This young adult novel will hold your interest. You will be looking forward to finding out what happens in the end.
    Beverly Stowe McClure has written several teen novels as well as an adult novel that delves into the realm of ghost stories. She lives in the country with her husband, Jack where they watch armadillos, skunks and other wild creatures. She is a member of the North Texas Society of Children&rsquo;s Book Writers and Illustrators and the national Society of Children&rsquo;s Book Writers and Illustrators. She is a mother to three sons, grandmother to four granddaughters and two grandsons and great grandmother to one great grandson. Her official bio says she married very young.
