Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh

Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh was published in 2017 and is a good haunted house and ghost story.

Blurb from the back of the book: "Harper Raine doesn't like her new house from the moment she steps inside. It make her skin crawl and her hair stand on end. There's an energy to the house that just doesn't feel right.

"There are rumors that the Raine Family's new house is haunted. Unexplainable events and tragedy seem to have befallen every family who's lived there before. Harper isn't sure she believes those rumors, until her younger brother, Michael stars acting strangely - throwing dark tantrums and alienating the family. Is Michael being a normal kid, or is something more sinister in play?

"The whole atmosphere gives Harper a sense of deja vu,but she can't remember why. Harper knows that the memories she's blocking will help make sense of her brother's behavior and the dangerous sensations she feels in this house, but will she be able to put the pieces together in time?"

I like the family relationships in this story and found them realistic. I also like the layers of ghost hauntings in this house and in Harper's life and the explanation given for all these layers. I like that both parents are alive.

This is the first of two books.

Read to a child today even if that child is you. 

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
