Jade Green was an amazing, frightening, fantastic ghost story about Judith Sparrow, a fifteen year old girl who has just become an orphan and is sent to live with her uncle in South Carolina. Her uncle has only one rule: you may not bring anything green into the house. Judith's mother had given her a picture of her in a green silk frame as a gift, and Judith cannot bear to part with it, so she secretly brings it in the house. What Judith doesn't know is that three years prior, a girl named Jade Green had taken her own life in that very house, and the color green is the one thing that awakens the ghost of her.

I gave this novel at ten out of ten because I loved it a lot. I was hesitant at first because I don't go to sleep very well after reading scary novels, but I enjoyed this one a lot and I think it was worth losing sleep over. I would recommend this to anybody. Literally. I would go walking down a busy street telling everybody I saw to read this book. No joke.

"A man, sir, in my opinion, is moderate in his drink, selective in his women, and does not risk his money over a gaming table." ~Jade Green, page 134
