National Book Award winner William Alexander conjures up a spooky adventure full of excitement in this entertaining sequel to A Properly Unhaunted Place. Rosa Ramona Diaz, the ghost appeasing assistant librarian, has unleashed all the ghosts who were previously shut out of the small town of Ingot. Now ghosts are everywhere, and the town's living residents are either learning to cope or trying to do the one thing no one can successfully do--banish the ghosts. At school, something supernatural is stealing kids' voices and leaving them speechless. And it's Rosa's job to solve the mystery and set things right. Meanwhile her best friend Jasper is dealing with what remains of the Renaissance Festival, where ghosts from Ingot's past are now battling it out with the ghosts of the Renaissance reenactors. And Rosa is experiencing a haunting of her own--could her father's ghost have followed her here? Somehow Rosa and Jasper are going to have to find a way to bring Ingot back to normal--in a world where the living are now residing side-by-side with the dearly departed.

My kids are grown, but a friend recommended the first book in the series, A Properly Unhaunted Place, so I devoured it myself, and it really took me back to what I loved about reading as a kid. Adventure, trivia about times past, ghost lore, friendship, and challenges. Did I mention ghosts? lol As a parent, I notice the themes of belonging and feeling confident, talking directly to what scares you or you don't understand. More specifically, a character feels very confident in certain situations, and her friend is the one who understands and is confident in a different setting. That is very human, and good to think about, because sometimes we think everyone but us "gets" it, but the fact is we ALL feel like a fish out of water at times - it just depends. And we all get stared at sometimes, etc. There's also grief, which here in the U.S. most of us don't talk about much, let alone with children. But it's a real and important thing. You don't want the first time your child thinks about it to be when it's in their own close circle. Funny, too!
