Happy Monday! Today I have the opportunity to do something I've hoped to do for quite a while now, a guest review. But this isn't just any guest review. My guest happens to be my niece, Avery. Avery is nine years old and has just finished up third grade. She's smart, sweet, and an avid reader (just like her aunt!).When this book came my way, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me, Avery, and the publisher, to find out what a real kid thinks about a kid's book. Avery was excited to take this on for review and I am ever so grateful.

Here's Avery's review of THE WHISPERING HOUSE, by Rebecca Wade.
The Whispering HouseWhen the Price family moves into Cowleigh Lodge while their home is being repaired, fourteen-year-old Hannah discovers that the ghost of a girl who died there at age eleven wants help unraveling the mystery of her 1877 death. ~From GoodReads

This book really interested me. The cover really wanted me to read it.

THE WHISPERING HOUSE was slow until the fourth chapter. The book is about a girl named Hannah Price, who stays in an old house where once another girl lived named Maisie Holt. Hannah finds out that Maisie died when she was eleven. Hannah finds a fairy tale book that tells stories about Maisie and Hannah starts having dreams about Maisie. Sam, Hannah's good friend, decides to help her find out what happened to Maisie.

I thought it was a good idea to find out what happened to her. I was curious what will happen in chapter eight and I was also wondering what will happen in chapter nine.

At the end of the book, Sam and Hannah found out what happened to Maisie. I thought that what happened to her was weird. I will recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery books. I hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did!

The author, Rebecca Wade, did a good job writing the book. It has two hundred, seventy-two pages and it will be on sale May 22, 2012. It also has thirty-four chapters.

**Thank you so much, Avery! You're awesome.**

Expected publication: May 22nd 2012 by HarperCollins Children's Books

  1. Awesome review! :)

    I love when kids/younger kids show great interest in books. However this book in particular with ghosts; I feel like when I was 9, it would freak me out. I used to be quite the scared-y cat when I was younger. Ha ha.

  2. Great review Avery!! This sounds like a great book. I love a good mystery.

  3. That's awesome! My daughter's almost 9, so I'll have to look out for it. Of course, she reads fat, factual volumes on cats & is a little bit of a wimp at scary stuff.

  4. I love this! Great job, Avery!

  5. What a great review, Avery! My son, Nicky, is almost 9 - I think that he would really like to read a mystery book like this one! I'll let him know about it :)
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  6. Great review, Avery! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D

  7. Love this review, Avery! And I agree, that cover is begging me to read this book, too! :)
