Response to the Novel: The book was pretty good I disliked because she didn?t finish off the job. It really didn?t make me think of nothing the characters were ok But they shouldn?t had Amelia she really didn?t make any use in the story.
Rating: If I had to rate this book I would give it a seven out of ten. It was ok book I?ve read better. I think it should have been I real ghost so no one could found out who did it.
