Mary Downing Hahn tells a great ghost story Her stories are written for a middle grade audience, but even at 50 years old, I love her ghostly tales Jules and her parents move around a lot Her dad restores historic old houses and buildings So they live in one place only long enough for him to finish a project, then move on to another town and another restoration job Jules is tired of moving, new schools and having no friends Her father s newest project is Oak Hill, an old mansion in Hillsborough, VA Locals say the house is haunted When Jules sees the ghost of a young girl, she realizes the stories just might be true She makes a new friend, Maisie, and the two girls start investigating the history of the house and why the spirit of the girl is trapped there This story is a bit spooky, but still age appropriate for middle grade kids Kids and adults who enjoy ghost stories would With Mary Downing Hahn s The Girl in the Locked Room A Ghost Story, I do have to admit that this is one of those stories where I have been so personally and massively disappointed with and by in particular the ending that my reading pleasure has in fact been lastingly and negatively affected and to such an extent that I really have ended up not enjoying the story as a whole nearly as much as I had fondly assumed and hoped I would For I was kind of expecting after Jules and her new friend Maisie convinced ghost girl Lily to leave the locked room and change the past save her parents from being murdered and by extension also her from dying of hunger and thirst in the locked room which she had been afraid to leave that in fact and indeed, not only the past but also the future the present had been truly and realistically altered In other words and very much alike to Anto Author Mary Downing Hahn writes ghostly children s books that will delight adults as well, and her latest, The Girl in the Locked Room proves no exception I couldn t put it down, if you ll pardon the clich Jules Aldridge has moved yet again this time to Hillsborough, Virginia her father Ron oversees the renovation of historic homes, and this time he is lovingly restoring Oak Hill, a dilapidated 200 year old mansion But Jules fears he ll move yet again, as he does after he finishes every job, condemning her to a new school and no friends But Jules soon realizes there s a girl in Oak Hill s attic but only she can see her Who is this ghostly presence Told alternatively by Jules and the frightened, eponymous girl in the locked room in the attic, The Girl in the Locked Room relates a great tale of friendship across time Recomm It bothered me how much this book bothered me It feels lately like a good kids book can get under my skin than any adult novel can Mary Downing Hahn just does a fantastic job of giving the little girl the transition in to death, and making it obvious what is going on At first she creeped me out, but by the end of the novel I just felt so sorry for her.
The ending was fantastic The adult part of me eye rolled and went That s not right , but luckily my inner child shut that old biddy up Because it was beautiful in it s innocent The way the friends come up with and execute their plan It was a perfect way to resolve a sad story for kids My favorite line in here was But that wasn t the end of the story That was just the end of the happy part.
I also loved that the parents were BOTH present in this novel And tha I am a big fan of Mary Downing Hahn I think she does a great job of creating a spooky atmosphere for kids This particular book was not as spooky as it was sad However, still an interesting portrayal that discusses how our actions affect our course of life.
This is my favorite book so far It is scary and just my type I think it is a great book for people that like horror and being scared ME And I read this with my bff, Ella Next, we are reading The Collector I think it will be really fun and hopefully scary Bye my QTs 3 Jules has never stayed in one place for than a year because of her dad, who restores historical buildings across the country She yearns for a permanent home and friends she can grow up with But when she and her family arrive in Hillsborough, she starts seeing scenes of life from hundreds of years before, and a girl dressed in old fashioned clothing The girl has been hiding for years She s lonely and sad, and watches Jules in her strange clothes She wants to go outside too, but every night they come for herI enjoyed this ghost story, filled with both sadness and hope Jules is relatable, as is her brand new friend, Maisie, whom she meets in the library and bonds over fantasy novels You also can t help but feel for the mysterious girl in the wardrobe Thank you to Clarion books and Netgalley for an ARC.
I d rate this 3 1 2 stars It s not as spooky as I thought it would be, but a solid middle grade ghost story which touches on the subject of alternate realities.
