Ask any girl what the best part of a slumber party or camping trip is and she'll tell you it's the ghost stories. This bright, interactive journal is for tweens who are no longer content to watch movies or read about ghosts online, but are ready to jump into the paranormal fray themselves. With workbook pages, ghost stories, quizzes, sidebars, and interviews with ghost hunters, this illustrated guidebook gives girls the tools to safely explore the unknown using everyday household items- and helps them discover their own strengths using deductive reasoning.

The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide is a quick and entertaining for readers of all ages.  The author covers a ton of information, from the basics right down to what it would take to conduct your very own ghost hunt.  Not only was the book helpful and enjoyable, I thought it was absolutely adorable.

Whether you're a believer or not, I think anyone will be able to find something they enjoy in The Girls' Ghost Hunting Guide.  Not only does it teach you how to become a ghost hunter, the book is filled with activities, recipes and urban legends.  The humor that Stacey sneaks into each chapter will make you laugh out loud and keep you turning the pages.  To give you more of an idea of what the activities include, there are chapters dedicated to levitating a table or even one of your friends and writing your own scary stories to share in the dark.

My favorite part of it all had to be the interviews with real ghost hunters about their shocking first experiences with the paranormal.  There are many helpful websites sourced throughout the book, which constantly made me want to look up information on local haunts in my hometown.  Overall, the book kept me entertained for hours and I was sad to finally put it down, but I know that I'll pick this one up time and time again.
