City of Ghosts
by Victoria Schwab (Scholastic, 2018); audiobook read by Reba Buhr (Scholastic Audio, 2018)
A straightforward story that makes a virtue of its simplicity. Cassidy Blake and her ghost friend Jacob are both relatable and likeable, and the threat they face is about right for late middle-grade. Reba Buhr’s audiobook reading really brings out the characterisation.
