Eglantine: Allies ghost Hunters #1
Who is writing on the walls?..We moved into our new house because Mum liked the vibes. But those vibes turned scary when ghostly writing started appearing on the walls of Bethan's room. Mum tried a few new-age tricks, but couldn't stop the creepy nightmares. We even called in paranormal investigators, but they were totally stumped. That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands...Full of suspense, mystery and humour, the books in this series follow Allie as she investigates a number of possibly paranormal events with a mix of logic, intelligence and teenage attitude...'Cleverly creepy, well-written and well-researched, this is a delightful spine-tingler and a great read.' The Sunday Tasmanian (on Eglantine)..'With great, unexpected twists in the story.this is a very addictive book, and I recommend it to anyone who wants an original mystery story.' Ambrose, Year 8, YARA goldcreek.act.edu.au/yara (on Eloise)
