City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab

Ever since Cass almost drowned (okay, she did drown, but she doesn’t like to think about it), she can pull back the Veil that separates the living from the dead . . . and enter the world of spirits. Her best friend is even a ghost.
So, things are already pretty strange. But they’re about to get much stranger.
When Cass’s parents land a gig hosting a TV show about the world’s most haunted places, the family heads off to Edinburgh, Scotland. Here, graveyards, castles, and secret passageways teem with restless phantoms. And when Cass meets another girl who shares her “gift,” she realizes how much she still has to learn about the Veil—and herself.
And she’ll have to learn fast. The city of ghosts is more dangerous than she ever imagined.
City of Ghosts (Cassidy Blake, #1)Review:
This story was so cute. I’ve recently started reading middle-grade books and this has been on my TBR since it came out and everyone loved it. I also really enjoyed it.
I thought Cassidy was such a fun main character. She’s pretty young and sees ghosts. I loved the setting. I would absolutely love to visit Scotland so I enjoyed seeing this as the setting and getting to explore the city in these pages.
I thought this was such a fun story. I know I’m not the audience that this story is directed at, which is probably why I just thought it was fun. It didn’t blow me out of the way or anything but I thought it was a fun quick read.
This book would have been the perfect book to read during Spooktober. Overall, I thought it was fun and interesting. I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the setting. I adored Cassidy’s friendship with her best friend Jacob. I also appreciated that her parents were in the story and mostly involved in her life. I definitely will be recommending this book to my nieces and nephew.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
