Taya Bayliss – Tree Hugger
Do you believe in ghosts?
David Garson or "Ghastly Garson" wants to destroy the town. Taya and the gang want to stop him, but they might not be able to because of the ghost that lurks around.
My favorite character was Taya because of her funny personality. My favorite part was when Minette was trying to get food from Prof. Mon, Chris, and Taya. It made me laugh.
I would definitely recommend this to my friends, because of the mystery and adventure elements. I can't wait to read he next book!
The author tells the story in a simple, straightforward way, so that pre-teens or teens will have no problem reading on their own, and teachers and parents need not worry about content sensitivity. The author never sounds condescending to young readers, nor does she try to use sensationalism or high-tech gadgets to keep their attention. The traditional feel of storytelling does not take away from the story for a second — there is more than enough intrigue, danger, and even ghosts to stir interest and keep readers on their toes.
Who among us never wanted to explore an ancient house filled with peril, ghostly history and secret passages? And share the adventure with your best friend! This is just the perfect book for a curious young mind with a kind heart, teaching all the positive values our children should learn as they grow, so they can remind us, just in case we forget!
