    A Great Paranormal/ Young Adult Book

    Charlie is a typical teenager with a very unusual job. All thanks to her father, whom she calls Frank, she has been forced to live the life of a grave robber. Frank has many ambitions but can't seem to get past what has always provided for himself and Charlie. All of this changes in one night.
    Charlie decides she wants to go on search of her runaway mother. She concocts a plan to do one more grave robbery and this one will land her the jackpot. Widow Taylor has died and was buried with all of her jewelry. (The townsfolk always swore she wore every single piece she owned at all times, anyway.) However, as Charlie is concocting her plan there are a few others with the same idea. When she sneaks into the parlor late that night to steal the jewels, she realizes she is not alone.
    With Frank, Charlie and some unnamed man all after the jewels, Charlie soon finds she has got in over her head. She pawns a bracelet to make her way to the last known residence of her mother and is disappointed in what she finds. She knows going back home will only mean trouble for her but she has no other choice. On the way back she encounters something she never expected, something unexplainable.
    This was a great young adult novel. It held my interest from beginning to end and had a few twists I wasn't expecting. I am interested in picking up her other novels and anything with a paranormal twist is alright in my book.

    Grave Robbers will steal your imagination and run with it!

    To be honest, I must say I was drawn to this book because of it's cover art. However, it was the fantastic storytelling that kept me riveted.

    I loved the main character, Charlie. She is a twelve-year-old tomboy. Unfortunately she suffers from taunts of the other girls in town, most scorning her because her mother ran off. She is a tough, smart and quite resourceful in a tough situation.

    Her father, Frank, is a grave digger who resorts to unsavory ways to make money. I love the line "Frank wasn't a bad man, just a man in a bad situation." It conveys the hard choices of a single father who must resort to robbing the very graves he digs to put food on the table and a roof over the head of his daughter.

    Charlie wants nothing more than to find her mother. She steals the jewels off a dead widow to finance her quest, and leaves home. This is where the story really takes off. The ghost of the widow follows her, and the intent of this paranormal creature is quite a surprise.

    There is so many fabulous and unexpected twists in this story: jumping trains, ghosts, kidnapping and even unexpected love...but I will not give too much away.

    Let me add, this story is more than a ghost story. It's also shows how one can redeem themselves and change their lives. It's never too late to find happiness.

    I highly recommend this book, not only to young adults, but "old" ones too.

    I give 4 1/2 stars to the book and many kudos to the author!
