The Ghost of Graylock

By Dan Poblocki

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




The Ghost of Graylock is a ghost story for children ten and up.What initially drew me to this book was the mazing cover...Sad but true!!!

Neil and Bee,aged twelve and sixteen respectively have unwillingly been sent to spent their summer with their aunts.Their mother has fallen into depression and all Neil can think about is their mother's recovery.

In the small town of Hedston lurks,indeed,a ghost.Once upon a time,there was an asylum for children,the Graylock Hall,located in the woods.It was said that a nurse,murdered three children under her care by drowning them in the lake.Neil and Bee set off to explore the asylum along with two local boys.

This is a first for me,as I have never read this type of book again.The Ghost of Graylock is a book with vivid description and it is also detailed.But it's not only the ghost story that dominates the book but Dan Poblocki also describes the danger the children are in as well as the bond between the two siblings.

Well,this book was a delightful surprise for me and I absolutely recommend it.It's a nice ghost story with solid characters and plenty of suspense.

Blurb:

Does an abandoned asylum hold the key to a frightful haunting?

Everyone's heard the stories about Graylock Hall.

It was meant to be a place of healing - a hospital where children and teenagers with mental disorders would be cared for and perhaps even cured. But something went wrong. Several young patients died under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, the hospital was shut down, the building abandoned and left to rot deep in the woods.

As the new kid in town, Neil Cady wants to see Graylock for himself. Especially since rumor has it that the building is haunted. He's got fresh batteries in his flashlight, a camera to document the adventure, and a new best friend watching his back.

Neil might think he's prepared for what he'll find in the dark and decrepit asylum. But he's certainly not prepared for what follows him home. . . .
Scary, suspenseful, and surprising, Dan Poblocki's latest ghost story will keep you turning pages deep into the dead of night.
