Do you believe in ghosts? Scritch Scratch is a pretty cool book! It’s about twelve-year-old Claire who lives in Chicago’s Lincoln Park. Claire’s dad is a ghost researcher who has a ghost tour business. Claire doesn’t believe in ghosts until the night when she has to help her dad on the ghost tour. That night a ghost follows her home! At first, Claire tries to keep everybody else from finding out about the ghost. She is afraid her dad will find out and add their house to his ghost tour. But finally, her brother finds out. At school, the ghost follows her into the bathroom. When her best friend finds her, the ghost turns on all the faucets and flushes all the toilets at the same time. With her friend’s help, Claire starts to solve the mystery of who the ghost is, and what it wants.
So watch out! This book gets scary! But my grandparents live in Chicago, so it is cool to read about places I know. My sister helped me with this book, because it’s pretty long, and it’s really for kids her age (she’s twelve). Scritch Scratch is part ghost story, part self-help for seventh-grade girls. I like Claire and her friends and her older brother Sam, but they are all a lot nicer than real people (I have an older brother, so I know).
