There are parts of Whisper that aren’t entirely appropriate for someone my age (12) and I felt that the author uses unnecessary cuss words just to make the book seem “cool.”
That said, the story-line is great and the theme of the book really kept me interested. The way that Stacey R. Campbell describes Elsie’s ghost is amazing.
Halle has discovered a journal in the attic. It turns out to belong to Elsie, the dead daughter of the founder of the school. Elsie drowned in a lake, only to have hidden the school’s golden crest on grounds shortly before.
When Halle finds the journal, she is certain that Elsie’s ghost has come to haunt her. She is awakened by a rustling in her room, only to find blue eyes hovering in midair and staring at her.
Halle sets out on a hunt to find the crest along with her friends Calum and Leigh only to discover that Elsie’s soul is getting restless. Will Halle be able to find the crest before it’s too late?
