Kat and the producer's grandson, Oscar, are convinced that a real-life ghost is afoot. Together they begin researching the secret tunnels underneath the streets of the city. Kat also keeps all her friends back home up-to-date about her discovery by starting a blog chronicling her expeditions.
Her blog takes off in popularity, and it soon might be what saves the show from being axed by the network. Of course, a stalker leaving death threats and a ghost that keeps possessing the producer might just seal the deal first.
This was a really fun middle grade read that is the perfect level of scary without going into horror. Kat is a girl with mommy issues. She is haunted by what she calls "the Thing", something the book doesn't really delve into, and which I found odd. When "The Thing" was revealed in the end, I understood what it was, but I'd always thought it was a corporeal entity, not just a thought. So, I was confused there. Anyway, Kat is a brave girl who wants to get to the truth of all the paranormal phenomena happening around her. Her adventures are a treat and carry the reader through the plot.
The sub plot of a stalker is a great tension-filled ride that will leave the reader guessing until everything comes to a head in a spooky prison setting. This book was great fun and I think kids will enjoy the tale. I give it 4.5 stars!
