Brody’s Ghost

December 23, 2010 at 11:00 am Leave a comment

Our winter reading program, 6 Weeks – 6 Books, is into week three.  I’m reading six books in six weeks along with you guys, and here’s my third book review.  If you want to participate, make sure to grab a book log next time you’re at the library.

“What I need is a ghostseer.  Someone who’s capable of seeing ghosts…hearing ghosts…and talking to ghosts.  Well, guess what you are, Brody?”

That’s right.  Brody can see ghosts.  He never knew he could until he met Talia, a reject of Heaven who must complete a good deed before she can get through those pearly gates.  For her good deed, she’s decided to catch a murderer, and she won’t leave Brody alone until he helps. 

My Review:  This manga-style graphic novel by the author of Miki Falls is a solid start to a new series.  I would definitely pick up book two after reading the end of book one, where Brody starts his training with a samurai ghost.  I liked Talia’s attitude, Brody’s suspicion of her, and the feeling that there’s much more to being a ghostseer than meets the eye.  Check it out!  Brody’s Ghost by Mark Crilley is now available at the library.
