Living in a haunted town has some advantages, and this spooky chiller plays them up. In The Clackity, Blight Harbor, Book 1, Evie Von Rathe is a brave and persistent heroine, and readers will root for her every step of the way as she tries to rescue her beloved Aunt Desdemona. Her supernatural opponents are sufficiently weird, and her allies steady and true. There's room for sequels, and readers will want to return for more.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
