Overview

Paige Parker can't wait to turn fourteen. Thirteen is definitely not her lucky number. So much has changed since her thirteenth birthday. Uprooted from her lifelong home in Providence, Rhode Island, she's now living in a run-down farmhouse in the rural village of Heather Hollow, afraid she'll die of boredom.

Paige soon finds boredom is the least of her worries. There's already someone in residence in her new home: the ghost of a girl who died more than a century ago! Worse, the ghost seems to have a connection to Mercy Brown, the infamous vampire buried in a local cemetery.

Paige enlists the help of her friend Amelia to sort out all the bizarre aspects of life in Heather Hollow: there's a clique of mean girls on mopeds, a goth girl with an interest in historic cemeteries, a cute boy with an uncle who authored a book on time travel, and an ancient librarian protecting a secret. There's also the Something that's lurking in the woods nearby. Something that seems to be stalking Paige.

Can Paige uncover the truth about her strange new home in time to save herself from a terrible fate? Or will she become another casualty of the evil that lurks in Heather Hollow?

I'm obsessed with the Twilight saga and of course, Harry Potter, but now that both series are finished I've been looking for another book series to get into. The Ghost Girls Series is awesome and just what I've been looking for! A friend recommended it to me and I absolutely love it! It's a great easy read and always keeps me guessing. I can't wait for the next book to come out! I'm now officially on Team Ghost Girls!

I've decided I need to take my next vacation in Rhode Island. I know Heather Hollow is a fictional village, but I am pretty sure I can find it somewhere in South County, RI based on the descriptions in this book. This book has a great mix of fact and fiction, and a really creepy feel. I read it in a single weekend (it's not very long, and it's definitely a page-turner) and now I can't wait for the next book in the Ghost Girls series. Really, my only criticism of this book is that it was too short. The characters are great, and the story had me hooked right away. I won't say too much more, because there are some secrets and twists I shouldn't give away, but if you like a good ghost story, or even fantasy, this is a good book to read!
