Bethan, Jay, Kelly, Hashim and Emily never thought they'd ever hang out with each other, but when a teacher puts them all in the same team for a school project everything changes. Emily confesses to them that she can hear ghosts and that she thinks her house is haunting. Each, for a different reason, decides to investigate the house and they find out more than they bargain for. The five of them will get tangled up in their town's secrets and one of them won't make it out alive.
As I got to know the characters and their stories, inner fears and hopes, I became more and more aware that they really resemble normal, everyday people. Everyone has their own personal ghosts and their own fight. Apart they are, sometimes, helpless, but together they can overcome almost everything. All of them so much different but so much alike.
Rook Hastings sets a great beginning for a series I never thought I'd fall in love with. I can't wait to start the next book and spend more haunted nights in Weirdsville.
