Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh


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 deja 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?

Staff or Student Review

Spirit Hunters, by Ellen Oh, is a thrilling mystery/horror story that grabs your attention right from the start. Harper’s adventure begins when her family moves to a new home. The home feels strange to her, and she notices her younger brother no longer seems to be the same happy boy he once was. Then she hears a rumor that people believe the home to be haunted. In her quest to find out what is happening with her brother, she finds out about herself and her heritage. I enjoyed this book because it kept me wanting to turn the pages to see what Harper would discover next. I would rate this book four stars.
