Ghost Squad

Written by Claribel A. Ortega

Sometimes, Lucely’s ancestors appear as fireflies to her. Other times they appear as themselves in ghost form. This is only one of the unique things about this book. There are plenty more supernatural characters to go on this adventure with. Secrets are uncovered as Lucely and her friend Syd try to save her family’s business and home in St. Augustine, Florida.

Kids that like ghost stories and adventure stories will enjoy this book. This book takes mythology from the Dominican culture and weaves it into a relatable ghost story for everyone. Reading this book reminded me of reading Frank L. Cole’s Potion Master series. Action and adventure!
