Adam is an ordinary boy, except for one thing. He can see and talk with ghosts.

When his family moves into what seems like the home of his dreams, Adam finds out it isn’t his dream home after all. Edward Lawrence, a bossy ghost who was Adam’s age when he died, regards the home as his own and he doesn’t want to share it with an annoying boy who can see him.

After Edward fails to convince Adam to get his family to move out, he seeks powerful help from the earthbound spirit world to get rid of them.

However, Adam has an ally in the earthbound spirit world as well as knowing a handful of tricks to get rid of ghosts. Adam just has to get rid of Edward before the Council of Earthbound Spirits authorizes Warrior Spirits to get rid of Adam and his family. But will Adam succeed in time?

Dead Scary: The Ghost Who Refused to Leave is a captivating, intriguing and fun novel that will have young readers entertained for many hours. Sally Gould is an author I adore, and this is because she is a sensational author. Sally Gould has written a series called The Max Books, and the three books within this series are fun, entertaining, action-packed adventure reads that all children will love. That is why I was so happy to read yet another book from Gould. Dead Scary is a sensational book and for those that love books that feature the paranormal then you readers will adore this as it features a prevalent ghost!

Dead Scary follows the protagonist of the story Adam and his family as they inherit the home of their dreams. Once arriving the family are excited, but Adam not so much so as soon upon his arrival, he notices that the house is already inhabited… by a ghost. Adam you see can not only see ghosts but talk with them and when he arrives at his new home he meets Edward, a ghost around the same age as Adam. Edward is not happy with the new visitors, he does not believe that they should be in his home and so he will try to do everything in his power to get rid of them. The reader will follow Adam on his journey to try and stop Edward in his tracks, and the result is a fascinating, something hilarious, entertaining book that will intrigue all readers.. even adults!

As I read Dead Scary all I could think was “wow, is there anything Sally Gould can’t do?!” and I truly mean this. Gould’s Max series is a phenomenal one and so is Dead Scary, but these two books are very different from one another so I was worried that maybe it would not live up to my expectations. However, Gould is a versatile writer and these talents of hers are showcased throughout Dead Scary. Gould is a writer who clearly knows how to entertain readers but she can also switch from one genre to the next in a swift moment and I am wildly impressed by this.

Sally Gould has again, for the fourth time astounded me with her literature. Gould has many talents but one of these prominent talents of hers are too write fun, humorous, engrossing stories. The whole way through Dead Scary all I could think that it was incredibly fun and wonderfully written and it most certainly is; Gould has a talent for inspiring many feelings such as laughter in her readers and she does this flawlessly.

As Dead Scary is an incredible, engrossing book that features phenomenal content and wonderful characters, I have no choice but to award this book five stars! So please, if you are looking for a paranormal read that will entertain you then read this book! Besides, it is free on Amazon!
