Book Review: All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn
Travis and his sister, Corey, can't resist a good trick. When they learn that their grandmother's quiet Vermont inn, where they're spending the summer, has a history of ghost sightings, they decide to do a little "haunting" of their own. Before long, their supernatural pranks have tourists flocking to the inn, and business booms.
But Travis and Corey soon find out that they aren't the only ghosts at Fox Hill Inn. Their thoughtless games have awakened something dangerous, something that should have stayed asleep. Can these siblings lay to rest the ghosts they’ve stirred?
Growing up, I loved reading ghost stories. Mary Downing Hahn has released some great young adult ghost story books over the years, and this one was great as well.
The main characters are Travis and Corey. They are fun and mischievous kids, the type of characters your kids would love to read about. There is a slight spookiness throughout the story, but yet so entertaining. This book also teaches some great lessons, and throws in a little bit of history. Perfect for any kid who loves a great story, especially with a supernatural theme.
I rated this book 3.5 out of 5 stars
