Ghost files is about a 16yr old foster kid named Mattie. Mattie has been able to see ghosts ever since she was 5yrs old when her mom tried to commit a murder suicide but Mattie lived. And I'm not talking about seeing Casper the friendly ghost, I'm talking about the sixth sense type of ghosts, she sees them the way they died, however horrific that might be. She has been ignoring the dead ever since then also, refusing to recognize them in hopes that they would just go away, until one day she see's the ghost of her foster sister Sally and has to help. After her foster mother refuses to call the police and Mattie ends up in the hospital for a severe migraine, she convinces her case worker when she comes to visit to report her foster sister missing. During the interview Mattie bonds with one of the detectives, and he with her, and from there a series of events take off. Mattie doesn't trust anyone and yet she seems to trust 20yr old Detective Dan with all her secrets. He believes her when she tells him that her foster sister is not just another runaway and agrees to help her.
Dan opens an investigation and him and Mattie are determined to find Sally's killer. Dan is Mattie's confident, she's never had anyone to depend on, and Dan is that for her. One thing I really like is that they both have mysterious backgrounds, both have no family history. Dan was adopted when he was a newborn into a loving family, and even though he's seems like your average Joe, he's far from it. He's more like Mattie than even he thinks. This series is a great YA Paranormal for all ages. It's not only about ghosts, but Demons and Angels too, and the decendants of these beings. It's like the sixth sense mixed with Mortal instruments if I had to sum it up. They even have protection Runes like Mortal Instruments, how awesome! The book has yet to tell Mattie's role in the grand scheme of things and I'm only too eager to find out. There are a host of supporting characters along the way that help make up this fantastic series that you will love. Mattie is a girl that can never seem to stay out of trouble and it's quite intriguing how she always lands in the most dangerous of situations. I will not give it away but you won't know what mythical being Mattie is until the end of book 1, it's great because she finds out at the same time the reader finds out. There are so many mysterious elements, it's addicting because you keep wanting more. Also let me mention that these books have already been optioned to be a movie by Rami Rank of the hits series Dexter and the production team of Pathbender that have been responsible for the for the Twilight Saga and Percy Jackson, so that's super exciting. Hopefully it will be in a theatre near you pretty soon. I'm stoked and hope you are too at this wonderful news. The link is below from the author's blogspot. HAPPY HALLOWEEN my fellow screeners!
