When Jay Winnick receives a mysterious blank piece of paper in the mail, he doesn’t think much of it. After all, it’s not such a weird thing to a kid who routinely subdues poltergeists, fends off deadly apparitions, and otherwise meddles in the affairs of the undead.

Plus, there’s nothing even on the paper…

What a cool new way to experience books! This 1st title in the Ghosts of Rockville series features Magic View.

The story centers on a group of 6th

Great book, for puzzle, mystery and paranormal lovers. Ghost Hunters meets Mystery Inc. (Sans Scooby and Scaggy) meets Harry Potter. Great reluctant reader book as it has the most cool special effects possible in a book. It comes with this special "viewer" that shows things in the book that can not be seen without it and they are actual clues one needs to help the kids solve the crime. This book does have ghost and other scary items and is clearly for 10 years and up - if scary nightmare produci ...more

Reviewed by my ten year old:

M: If you're a fourth or fifth grader who liked Harry Potter and you like mystery, you'll like this. Oh, also, the author is very good at setting suspense. It's the first in a series.

the premise of this book was good, and i enjoyed reading it. However, there were parts that seemed a little slow or simplistic. That would be why I believe that Higher Elementary age to Middle School aged students would enjoy this book.
