THE GHOST HUNTRESS BOOK: THE REASON
Another winner from Gibson! The author steps up her game as she polishes Kendall’s voice. And readers will be thrilled that Gibson finally delves into the mystery surrounding Emily, Kendall’s ghostly guide! Gibson also further develops Kendall’s relationship with Jason, illustrating the way that teen relationships are sometimes a mixture of the good and the bad moments – but that they should never become fodder for obsessive behavior. While this installment of the series includes a strong message that Kendall is “doing God’s will” by helping these souls, her spiritual guide is focused on helping Kendall do good, something we can all relate to.
Kendall is now a high school senior. She’s happy with her boyfriend, Jason, and her ghost hunting team is doing well. But after having a premonition of her own death, this ghosthuntress is working overtime to try to put together all the pieces of the puzzle before it’s too late. The team’s newest case is also weighing heavy on Kendall’s mind. At the Mayor’s mansion the girls have discovered a twisted ghost who would like to help make Kendall’s deathly premonition become a reality!
