The Crane Diaries: Homecoming
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history--and it's the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.
She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn't so freaky. She's even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren't faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.
Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it's going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary's new friends investigate a "haunted" house.
The house's new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn't sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate.
Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home? And when some of her own family's long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?
Great YA for youth or Adults
Every time Apryl Baker brings us back to the world of The Ghost Files I get lost in the story. In the new spin off story for Ghost Girl, Mattie or these days she goes by Emma Rose Crane. We find ourselves exploring a new chapter in life for Mary and Mattie/ Emma. Off at college with mirror boy in Jake’s body, the girls find themselves in the midst of trouble and ghostly troubles again. With some characters added to the mix and a few old favorites we start the first leg in learn our journey to discover Emma’s new path. I love how realistic the characters are and how authentic their reactions and experiences are. This is a great start to a new storyline.
