Harper, forced to move from NY to DC with her family, hates the stupid old house she now lives in. It’s too hot and something about it sets her on edge. Things get worse when Michael, her four-year-old brother, starts talking about his friend Billy that Harper can’t see and acting strange. Harper has her own problems, however – she’s missing memories. She knows there was an accident at school and then something bad happened to her afterward, but she doesn’t know what and her family won’t tell her. As strange and scary things start happening around the new house, Harper begins to realize her missing memories might have something to do with what’s happening to her little brother – but she’ll have to remember if she wants to help him.
I was really hankering for some middle-grade and Spirit Hunters really hit the spot! It’s dark, genuinely creepy and touching, plus it’s written by an own voices author – everything I love in my MG!
