The Ghost Road

Ghosts a family curse buried secrets and two girls who have to figure it all out A new book from an acclaimed author for fans of Coraline Doll Bones and The Night GardenerFor the first time Ruth is heading to Newfoundland to stay with family she's never met instead of spending the summer traveling with her dad When she arrives she finds Newfoundland is very different from her life in Toronto people there are much friendly but also superstitious believing in gho. Canadian writer Charis Cotter starts out The Ghost Road with a strong description of the Maritimes in Canada She describes a lovely setting that includes the natural area cute lighthouses cottage type housing and the coastal shore One of the best lines in the book is You re walking on a fairy path my love and just because you don t believe in them doesn t mean they won t come after youWe start to get a sense of the magic that might lie just beyond or within the coastal area Unfortunately the first few chapters are easily the best part of this one Boring MysteryI hate to say it but this was just a boring book I know it s written for middle aged kids and all but that doesn t mean that things have to happen so slow or be obvious I pegged the outcome very early on and was about 85% correct in the end There s just no fun in a book that sets up a mystery but doesn t really churn the intrigue throughout I want to feel the mystery have theories experience the characters theories etc Instead in The Ghost Road I just knew how it would eventually end up and was barely along for the ride Childish WritingAgain I come back to the idea that middle aged kids do not need to have their books written as though they are lesser readers I like middle aged books that are moderate to read with some larger words thrown in that the kids can learn I was a voracious reader as a child and as an adult lol at 12 was into Lord of the Rings and The Eye of the World yet I still think the average 12 year old reader can be given credit than Cotter hands out My 15 year old nephew complained to me for years about how boring the books were in the middle grade genre He s a good reader but not advanced per say than the average kid I know he would have asked me when something exciting was going to happen for 90% of The Ghost Road Additionally I had a moment while reading Cotter s Canadian story that made me feel like I had written pieces of this book when I was a pre teen At 13 I had an idea about a hill that held magic and secrets Mine wasn t in the Maritimes but in my home area that includes foothills prairies and the Rocky Mountains The general premise was very similar to that of The Ghost Road This is telling to me If this book isn t smarter than 13 year old me then it could definitely be improved OverallWhile our lead girl characters are fairly well developed and there are some interesting moments in The Ghost Road overall it s just too dull A bit magic is needed to really bring the story alive and off the page The biggest improvements that need to be made are to make the mystery complex and to really add some juicy information into the book Were Cotter to make the historical mystery interesting and add some complexity to the writing and characters then I think she could really have something here As it is I m probably being generous at 3 stars However I did finish reading The Ghost Road and didn t hate it I just found it very lack luster by the end To read this and of my reviews visit my blog at Epic Reading Please note I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley This is an honest and unbiased review

Sts and The Sight and family curses Ruth's cousin Ruby is also staying for the summer and the two discover they have a lot in common they both lost their moms when they were two years old they're the same age and they even like the same food But while Ruby believes in spirits and fairies Ruth believes in science and cold hard factsWhen they find ominous information on some tombstones in the local cemetery Ruth and Ruby start investigating their family's past an. MY REVIEW 45 STARS I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review from Penguin Random House Canada Do not judge a book by it s cover nor should you ever judge a book by it s direct audience age I must admit when I first received the copy of The Ghost Road I was very skeptical I wondered if I would actually enjoy it because young readers or middle school age novels weren t really my thing I find the writing to be too simplistic at times but Charis Cotter has a way with words that made it a perfect blend of middle grade and young adult level of writing The cover may not be the most attractive thing you ve seen but it s really the inside that counts I m serious The Ghost Road follows the tale of Ruth Her mother has passed away since she was very young so she has little to no memory of her Ruth lives in Toronto but during the summer when her father decides to travel overseas to study flowers with his new wife she s sent to Newfoundland and Labrador to meet an aunt and cousin she knows nothing about There s mystery surrounding Ruth s mother Although Ruth s mother grew up in NFL she hardly mentions it to Ruth Ruth knew nothing about the province on the east coast of Canada She didn t know any of the folklore her identical looking cousin Ruby knows so much about and she doesn t know anything about the family history Apparently Ruby s mother was a twin sister of Ruth s sister What was strange was that they both happened to die at the same time and same day Meanwhile Ruth and Ruby look exactly alike and I forget but I think their birthday was significant as well This all built up to the idea that in the family line one twin will be gifted the sight The Sight allows them to see the infamous Ghost Road Meanwhile others can t see it for the life of them It was definitely some spooky and scary stuff that left me turning the pages and wondering what in the world was actually going on I found this book to be so entertaining The chapters were short so it kept me intrigued and wanting to sit through and binge ten chapters at a time And Charis did an amazing job at leaving each chapter on a hook that made you want to read As chapters went on secrets and clues were revealed that allowed readers to piece together an idea of what was going on Of course I didn t And I couldn t pin down the exact answer to things MY RECOMMENDATION Definitely pick this one up for Halloween It s spooky

    Why do ghosts haunt? Because they have unfinished business Because there is something that keeps them on earth until they have completed their mission Ruth has gone to Newfoundland for the Summer to visit her cousin Ruby who she discovers looks very much like her It is almost as though they are twins But that is not the weirdest thing Because although Ruth doesn't believe in ghosts and visions and having the Sight she starts experiencing
