Ghosters 2 is about Joey and Elbie, two boys that are friends at school that also happen to be able to see ghosts. When there are some weird things happening in the library at school, they know it is a ghost and in order to get things operational again they have to help it.

Elbie live in a mortuary with his parents and likes to prank people. Joey is a young boy that is very well behaved and happens to also have Asperger's. He is a wonderful representation of these behaviors in a kind way, it is o

Ghosters 2: Revenge of the Library Ghost by Diana Corbitt

Joey Martinez and Elbie Bird are sixth grade friends whose class is in the school library when a ghost starts wreaking havoc. Neither of these two boys are bothered by ghosts, they are part of their daily life. Joey Martinez lives in a haunted house with his older sister, Theresa, and their father. Joey, who narrates the story, is a high functioning Asperger's/autism spectrum individual. He struggles with social cues, sarcasm, and takes th

Ghosters 2 is a perfect find!

My kids (ages 8 and 12), enjoy watching “scary” shows like Goosebumps and Creeped Out. This is something I will recommend to them!

Plot is more like a “whodunit” mystery with grade school level detectives. Who just happen to have the ability to see and communicate with ghosts! If that isn’t creepy enough, one of the main characters, Elbie Bird, lives over the family-owned funeral home.

Joey Martinez is another main character and the story is told through his eyes. Gho

I enjoyed Ghosters 2: Revenge of the Library Ghost* more than Ghosters because this story was more light-hearted than the first book.

This book is written from Joey’s point of view, which initially confused me, having just finished reading the first book, which was written from Theresa’s point of view. However, it did not take long before I made the mental switch to Joey’s point of view, and I was lost in the story.

Like with the first book, my favorite aspect is how people with disabilities/dis

I have just finished reading this little gem and all I want to say is that it's such an enjoyable read!
I haven't read the first book of the Ghosters series but I managed to get through this one without any major confusion so - no, you don't have to read these in order (which is great when it comes to children's books).
What I loved most about this book is that it is mostly written from the point of view of a young boy - Joey, who as Asperger Syndrome. In various parts of the book we can see that

This is a delightful story of two unique boys – Joey who has Asperger’s and Elbie who lives above a mortuary. They both share one thing in common – they can see ghosts! Together they are a force to be reckoned with as one is a practical joker and the other is learning to be. Together with a couple of professional ghost hunters (ok, not really but they are girls, about the same age as the boys and they won a ghost contest), they solve the mystery of the haunted library.

Review of LIBRARY GHOST (GHOSTERS BOOK TWO) by Diana Cribbins

LIBRARY GHOST is every bit as exciting as GHOSTERS, the first in the series, with the pleasurable addition of a new narrator. Joey Martinez, younger brother of Theresa (one of the heroines of GHOSTERS), has high-functioning Asperger's Syndrome. Very intelligent, he doesn't do social cues well (such as facial expressions, sarcasm, and snark). But he always reaches conclusions, and in his own special and endearing, though occasionally fr

The story centered on a couple of middle schoolers Joey, high function on the Asperger/Autism spectrum and Elbie, who has ADHD, and a haunted library. Their class visits a library when a ghost makes itself known by creating havoc. It was no big deal apparently to Joey who lives in a haunted house with family. I have to say the one thing that stood out in this story, which is the second installment in Corbitt's Ghoster series. is that the two central characters are what some people would classify ...more

I had the privilege to read "Ghosters 2: Revenge of the Library Ghost" at the request of the author Diana Corbitt and I absolutely adored this follow-up to her novel "Ghosters". This time the story revolves around Joey, Theresa's little brother, and his friend Elbie. Diana perfectly captures the personalities of middle school aged children while encouraging her readers to connect with the characters of the book. In addition the story also provides humor and fun, bone-chilling ghost hunting adven ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! You can't help but love the friendship between Joey and Elbie. They don't let Joey's Asperger's get in the way of them having fun or getting into a bit of mischief while solving the mystery of their school library and principal. The comfort level they have around the ghosts is admirable as well. I know for myself  I wouldn't have been that great at handling the special ability to see and communicate with ghosts at their age. This story also involved my love of boo ...more

This book follows the story of the four kids Joey, Elbie, Theresa and Kerry. All of them except for Kerry can see and talk to a ghost 👻.. Now how cool is that! It follows a wonderful adventure of how these kids help a ghost expose its truth. It’s filled with relatable “Creep and Freak” scenes and describes all the fun/mischief kids play.

This book definitely has a very attractive vibe, also has a beautiful and easy narration. This book will be a kids favourite read for sure!

I’d recommend this boo

This book is focused more on Joey and Elbie, his best friend. From the first book, we know that Joey is able to see paranormal activities, a.k.a ghosts. ⁣

What’s more interesting is that his best friend and family owns a business, the funeral services. With a house full of people who just passed, and those who have passed but refused to leave, the boys meet and befriended them. ⁣

This book is the sequel to Ghosters. The first book was told from the perspective of Theresa and this book was told from the perspective of her younger brother, Joey. This book was unique because Joey has Aspergers and struggles with reading facial cues and takes things literally. It was really interesting getting to view things from his perspective!!

The first book focused on a ghost in Theresa and Joey’s home. This book was about a ghost in the library at Joey’s school. Joey, his friend Elbie,

*Thank you to the author for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

I love a good spooky middle-grade book, and this was just that. This book follows an autistic main character named Joey with his best friend Elbie as they try to solve a paranormal mystery involving a ghost in their school library. I thought the story was really well done and I was genuinely interested in solving the mystery. I also loved the main character Joey, who I found to be such a sweetie. I’m rati

When friends Joey and Elbie uncover a secret from the past, one they learned from a ghost, they are headed into a ghostly mystery. The author writes this young adult mystery with a touch of humor that I think all ages will like. Thee fact that both Elbie and Joey have a connection to ghosts only makes this mystery even more fun. The book is well written, making it a quick read that holds the readers attention. well done.

Join Elbie and Joey on the hunt to solve a mystery. They are unique in that they can see and talk to ghosts. Even though they struggle with ADHD (Elbie) and Asperger's (Joey) they aren't shown with that as a hindrance and I loved that immensely. They are a little quirky yes but it adds to the charm of the book.This is definitely the series for all the young sleuths who aren't afraid of a little spook.

Love, love, love to write. Especially stuff that's scary, tense and freaks people out. Doesn't have to have ghosts. The funnest scenes to write are the ones that hold the reader tight and stops their breathing. So fun.
