Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8+. A chilling and brilliant horror story, Ghosting tells how the make-believe of contacting the spirit world becomes horribly real for Sandy and her brother Nat. Taught by their Mum how to ‘talk’ to the dead, Nat and Sandy put on a great double act. Sandy loves the easy way of making money but Nat has doubts. He hates the lying and cheating that it involves. And then they get caught out. The world they thought they created becomes horribly real and sandy and Nat find themselves in extreme danger.

Without exception dyslexia-friendly books published by Barrington Stoke get off to an exciting start and maintain the impetus throughout, with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. The plot is clear, the characters appealing and there are plenty of visual clues, as dyslexics like to run a story like a video in their heads.
