Book Review | Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega

Ghost Squad is a middle grade horror novel by Claribel A. Ortega.

Ghost Squad by Claribel A. Ortega

Coco meets Stranger Things with a hint of Ghostbusters in this action-packed supernatural fantasy.For Lucely Luna, ghosts are more than just the family business. Shortly before Halloween, Lucely and her best friend, Syd, cast a spell that accidentally awakens malicious spirits, wreaking havoc throughout St. Augustine. Together, they must join forces with Syd's witch grandmother, Babette, and her tubby tabby, Chunk, to fight the haunting head-on and reverse the curse to save the town and Lucely's firefly spirits before it's too late. With the family dynamics of Coco and action-packed adventure of Ghostbusters, Claribel A. Ortega delivers both a thrillingly spooky and delightfully sweet debut novel.

Part Goonies, part Coco, part Ghostbusters!

I loved Ghost Squad! At one point I asked my husband "did I write this?!" It had so many of my favorite elements and references. I want to cyber-stalk Claribel A. Ortega until we are best friends.

When Lucely Luna and her best friend Sid learn there is a missing spell book that can bring back the dead, they obviously need to find it. What could possibly go wrong?

Ghost Squad is cute, scary, funny, and heartwarming. I am going to immediately pass this one on to my kids. I don't think they will get all of the references, but adults surely will. This is a great readalong book!

If you enjoy middle grade or have a middle grade reader in your life, I highly recommend Ghost Squad.

5/5 stars
