    "Time for Andrew is more for adults than children. It has a lot of mystery plot and suspense. It touches on a lot of science topics such as time travel. It is very interesting and narrates about Andrews struggles on a daily basis."

    "This was one of my favorite scary books when I was a kid. I bought it for my daughter and she read it immediately, so I guess it passes the test of time. Would recommend for any kid who loves scary stories."

    "The Ghosts of Mercy Manor is a good book for kids to read. It tells the story of a young girl who meets a ghost named Rose, though no one else believes she exists. A story that has been done before, but this one is very interesting."

    "It’s not The Red Badge of Courage, but that’s not why I bought it for my nephew. It’s a good way to introduce the civil war to a child. I know he really enjoyed it and that’s all that counts to me. He also love the ghostly aspect of things."

    "I remember reading Nina Tanleven books when I was a kid, so of course, I wanted to revisit them with my daughters. If my fond memory of them isn't enough recommendation, I enjoyed them all over again with the reread, as did my girls. Read the first two books in the trilogy first, I'd even argue they're better than the third, but definitely check this out."

    "I really do not think kids need to get this nonsense about ghosts in their heads. Ghosts do not exist, and kids are very susceptible to fiction thinking it could be real."
