"City of Ghosts" by Victoria Schwab


Cass almost drowned in a river. Jacob pulled her out of the water. Now the two of them have a connection and he's become her best friend. The thing is...Jacob is a ghost.




Cassidy's parents have no idea she can see ghosts and takes her to one of the most haunted cities in the world, Edinburgh, Scotland. There she meets another girl like her and realizes she has a 'purpose.' Unfortunately, it may be too late because a particularly nasty specter called the Raven in Red has much different plans for Cassidy.

"City of Ghosts" by Victoria Schwab is the first book in a middle grade series that is sure to please readers who love mysteries with a hint of scary.

School Library Journal recommends for grades 4-8
