Book Review: Haint Misbehavin
TITLE: Haint Misbehavin
Book 1 in a planned series apparently
AUTHOR: Maureen Hardegree
PREMISE: Heather's summer is pretty rotten so far and it's made worse when she discovers a ghost that is hell bent on getting her attention...
MY REVIEW: I've never heard of this book but saw it on net galley as read now so I figured what the heck? Reading it, I understand why it never became uber popular or got a mention. The writing is terribly amatuerish, despite the fact that apparently the author has been writing for awhile now. All the characters are obnoxious at some point or another, especially the main character. There doesn't really seem to be a plot of any sort and when the solution finally comes along it seems pretty easy.
But for the audience that I'm guessing this book is aimed at (tweens of the Twilight variety) it's okay. It's just that I've read much better and honestly don't have much to say about it as it's one of those books that isn't completely horrible or totally brilliant. It's just there to fill a niche in the market.
WHO SHOULD READ: Paranormal fans in the younger crowd
MY RATING: Three out of Five ghost children
