Summary: Twelve-year-old Alex may have lost his ability to play sports, but he gained the ability to see ghosts. Now he must figure out how to put an evil spirit to rest–or die trying.
Once an athlete and popular kid, Alex is in a terrible car accident that severely injures his hip and leaves him with a rare power: he can hear and see ghosts. All Alex wants is to be normal. But when a malevolent spirit begins haunting him, Alex must accept his unwanted psychic powers and work with his best friend, his paranormal investigator cousin, and two friendly spirits to solve the mystery of the bones in the wall and put the vicious ghost to rest. If he fails, he’ll lose his family and friends to a gruesome fate.

Review: I really loved the concept of this book, that everyone was living in a world where ghosts are present constantly but only a few see them and that they have to use protective sigils around them so the spirits cannot get to them. It was so original and so innovative.
For me personally I didn’t care for the protagonist he really annoyed me, however I really liked what he could do I liked the speed he learnt it all and overcame everything in his own time. It was fascinating getting to read about him learning to deal with the ghost he’d never seen before and then becoming more powerful than he thought he would would be. It was really cool.
It was a very fun and fascinating horror book, it was written well, it had a lot of education in this field for anyone that’s interested in learning about spirits and ghost hunting. It wasn’t too scary, it had a fun element of mystery behind it having to solve what happened to the spirits and how to remove them.
Overall this book was good fun, and great to read something paranormal with a new take on it.
