The Ghost of Saddle Mountain
I think that The Ghost of Saddle Mountain was a pretty good book. The Ghost of Saddle Mountain is about a kid named Hoot (his real name is Hoyt, though). He loves to explore, but one day he hears a voice asking for help. It was very mysterious, especially the fact that it knew his name. In spite of others’ opinions, he is now determined to figure out this mystery. I like how this book is different. It doesn’t have an overused plot like other books that focus on mystery. I also like how the book isn’t stuck on one idea. It doesn’t just focus on the ghost. It branches off into a different plot, which includes Hoot’s interest in rock music, his family, and his overall personal life. It makes it seem like he has more of an actual person’s life, not just the life of someone who eats, sleeps, and breathes the mystery. I also just like the idea of a story developing in the background. Overall, it was a good book, and I would definitely recommend it to others.
