What do you do when a ghost needs your help?
Jon doesn’t believe in ghosts. Not even if his mother does, and married a man who researches ghost sightings for his own TV show. Not even when they travel with the show, and visit “haunted” places.
But his younger sister Tania claims she can see the ghosts. Deciding to believe her is just the first challenge. Softhearted Tania wants to help the ghosts. First the siblings have to find out what happened to keep each ghost trapped in this world. Then they have to help the ghosts move on—sometimes by letting them take over Tania’s body. All this while dealing with their overprotective mother, a stepfather who’d want to exploit Tania’s gift, and a changing assortment of human troublemakers.
Life gets interesting when your sister sees ghosts. And the TV show’s shooting season is just beginning....
Praise for The Haunted series:
Haunted is a fun read with some thrills and chills and has the added bonus of some genuine, compassionate personalities. - School Library Journal
...a fantastic story, ripe with suspense and filled with likable, tangible characters.
I highly recommend this book for girls and boys (and adults) who like mysteries. You should definitely read this book!
By turns touching, and with genuinely creepy moments, this is a wonderful addition to ghost lore fiction....
What I loved most of all, was the way my 4th grade daughter got sucked into the story. She's a reluctant reader so it was a joy to see her completely absorbed in a book; she immediately started the second book in the series when she finished, and can't wait for more.

Jon and Tania are back and tracking down more ghosts, this time on the
River on an antique river-boat. With them are their mother and
stepfather, producers of a hit TV show about "real-life" ghosts -- a
topic no one on the crew seems to take all that seriously. But Tania has a gift
-- she can see and communicate with ghosts, and this time she’s in touch with
the spirit of a riverboat captain who accidentally caused the boat to catch
fire, and he’s making trouble for everyone. Will Tania be able to help this
troubled spirit find peace before disaster strikes again?
When Jon and Tania attend a costume party at a museum full of ancient arms and armor -- relics that have been through bloody battles, or worse -- it doesn’t surprise either of them to discover a ghost lurking in the shadows. But this particular ghost is on a mission, and if Jon and Tania don’t help him, he just might become the warrior he was when he was alive, and that means trouble -- and danger -- for everyone involved!
Jon and Tania are traveling with the ghost hunter TV show again, this time to the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, where the ghost of an old miner is still looking for his lost mine. The siblings want to help him move on—but to help him resolve the problem keeping him here, they’ll have to find the mine. And even then, the old ghost may be having too much fun to leave! It’s a good thing Tania can see and talk to him, because the kids will need his help to survive the rigors of a mule train through the desert, a flash flood, and a suspicious treasure hunter who wants the gold mine for himself.
