Review: Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega

December 2, 2020

About the book:

For Lucely Luna, ghosts are more than just the family business.

Shortly before Halloween, Lucely and her best friend, Syd, cast a spell that accidentally awakens malicious spirits, wreaking havoc throughout St. Augustine. Together, they must join forces with Syd’s witch grandmother, Babette, and her tubby tabby, Chunk, to fight the haunting head-on and reverse the curse to save the town and Lucely’s firefly spirits before it’s too late.

My thoughts:

Love love love this. It’s a little bit Ghostbusters, it’s a little bit Scooby Doo. A ghost story with a twist. This is a fabulous romp. Lucely is a gorgeous lead character. Caring, family-oriented, a great friend and she can see ghosts. It’s just her and her dad at home. But it’s hardly a lonely life. Her family – those who have passed – are still around and they are exactly as they were in real life. Full of joy, sassy, mouthy and filled with love for Lucely and her dad. Who wouldn’t want to see the ghosts of their family? Her best friend is Syd and together these two are a pair not to mess with. Add in Chunk, the cat, and Babette, Syd’s witchy Grandmother, and they are an unstoppable squad. And they need to be. Because Lucely’s Dad is having money troubles, Lucey fireflies are fading and there is something dark gathering in the air.

When a spell is accidently cast, it’s a race to catch the ghosts and save the town before it is destroyed.

Jump on this book. Grab it for your children or nieces and nephews or yourself. It’s a fabulous read. The characters fairly pop from the page. The town is buzzing with magic and terrific worldbuilding puts you right there in Lucely’s house, or the cemeteries, or Syd’s Grandmother’s house. I really enjoyed it.
