Descrizione

We Need Diverse Books founder Ellen Oh returns with Spirit Hunters, a high-stakes middle grade mystery series about Harper Raine, the new seventh grader in town who must face down the dangerous ghosts haunting her younger brother.

A riveting ghost story and captivating adventure, this tale will have you guessing at every turn!

Harper doesn't trust her new home from the moment she steps inside, and the rumors are that the Raine family's new house is haunted. Harper isn't sure she believes those rumors, until her younger brother, Michael, starts acting strangely.

The whole atmosphere gives Harper a sense of déjà vu, but she can't remember why. She knows that the memories she's blocking will help make sense of her brother's behavior and the strange and threatening sensations she feels in this house, but will she be able to put the pieces together in time?

    Harper and her family have just moved and as soon as Harper steps foot in the house she feels something malevolent. Harper has just been released from a hospital after a suspicious fire and an incident where her arms were broken. Her brother is behaving oddly and Harper is starting to have visions of a nasty boy who died in the house in the past and who also becomes her brother's invisible "Friend". As Harper gets her memory back, she begins to realize that things aren't what they seem and she needs to enlist the help of some spirits to fight back to save her brother.

    Young readers searching for a genuinely scary ghost story need look no further than Ellen Oh's (of We Need Diverse Books fame) Spirit Hunters. In the creepy tale, Harper Raine has just moved into an old house with a storied past. Harper quickly feels that something isn't right, but can't quite place it until her little brother, Michael, makes a new "friend" in the house. As Harper begins to remember flashes of her own, other-wordly encounter from years before, she pieces together the very dark truth. Harper isn't alone, however; with the help of one very supportive, new friend and one very unique, old friend Harper will have to dig deep into her past to find the strength and courage to save her brother.

    Woven into the horror story is a tale of stressed familial love. Harper is Korean-American and there is one particular scene near the beginning of the book which depicts her unique situation in the community. Her mother and grandmother are estranged; this relationship builds on their Korean heritage and old family wounds. Harper is a heroine worth cheering for with a fantastic supporting cast. The scariest scenes – and they are quite scary! – are fantastic for middle grade. They're enough to make you look over your shoulder and pull the blankets up to your nose, but aren't enough to give most readers nightmares. For the stout-hearted seeking a great scare with good characters and morals to boot.

    I checked out Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh because it was on the National Public Radio list of 100 best horror novel and stories. Harper Raine is a 12-hear-old Korean-American girl from New York City whose family has made the mistake of moving to Washington, D.C. during the summer. (I was a kid living in a suburb of D.C. 1964 - 1971. Harper is not exaggerating the heat and humidity. She's living what my family and I lived with before room air conditioners, let alone central air conditioning, were common.) Yes, the central air-conditioning in their new old house isn't working properly. So why is Harper's little brother's room freezing cold? Why can't Harper see or hear Michael's new friend, Billy? We soon find out there's no chance that Billy is just your average imaginary friend.Harper's parents, Yuma and Peter, are very busy getting the house ready. Her 16-year-old sister, Kelly, is very busy studying when she isn't busy shopping with their mother.We learn as early as chapter one that Harper was injured, an injury that has robbed her of part of her memory. The more we learn about what caused the injury, the more frightening the incident becomes.Luckily for Harper, she's able to learn about the history of their house, known as 'the Old Grady House,' from a local girl, Dayo Clayton. Dayo is as open-minded about the supernatural as Harper's mom is close-minded.She also wants to be Harper's friend, which is just what our heroine needs.As Michael starts behaving weirdly and other strange things happen, Harper's memory starts coming back. She really wants to see her supportive Grandmother Lee again, but her mother keeps dragging her feet. Kelly blames everything on Harper. As the dangers mount, is Michael destined to be another young victim of the Grady house? Not if Harper can help it!Notes:Chapter 1: a. We're introduced to Harper Raine (12), her little brother, Michael (4), and their mother, Yuma.b. This is where Harper looks in a photo album and muses about gaps in her memory.Chapter 2: Almost every chapter has an entry in what Harper calls her 'Stupid D.C. Journal'. They're interesting. Also interesting is the last page of the author's acknowledgments. The final paragraph made me laugh.I wish Spirit Hunters had been available when I was the intended age range (8 -12). I would have been more frightened by it than any story in Ghosts, Ghosts, Ghosts selected by Phyllis R. Fenner or Ghosts and Goblins, compiled by Wilhelmina Harper. I still enjoyed it.
