Publisher's Summary

Jadie never spoke. She never laughed, or cried, or uttered any sound. Despite efforts to reach her, Jadie remained locked in her own troubled world - until one remarkable teacher persuaded her to break her self-imposed silence. Nothing in all of Torey Hayden's experience could have prepared her for the shock of what Jadie told her - a story too horrendous for Torey's professional colleagues to acknowledge. Yet a little girl was living in a nightmare, and Torey Hayden responded in the only way she knew how - with courage, compassion, and dedication - demonstrating once again the tremendous power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.

Will Not Disappoint

Any additional comments?

This was my first Torey Hayden book, I am so glad I read the reviews and bought it. I was not disappointed in fact, I cant wait to get my next Torey Hayden Book. The narrator was one of the best, did a fantastic job with all the different kids.

Shocking and Most Intriguing

What did you like best about Ghost Girl? What did you like least?

The details of this story are almost unbelievable. It kept me hooked till the very last minute. An amazing account of what could happen around us, and how life is sometimes more surprising than fiction!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Girl?

When the girl finally opened up to tell what she was suffering from.

What about Suehyla El'Attar’s performance did you like?

It was really good. She gave each character a recognizable voice.

Do you think Ghost Girl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It would just be "milking it".

Any additional comments?

Shocking as it may seem, maybe we need to know more about the lives of children who have gone through difficult experiences.

Unsatisfied

This is a well told story: especially more so because it is a true account. What I found frustrating, was that there was no follow up in the epilogue as to Jayde's ensuing years following her removal from her parents' home. Did she have a stable foster home? Did she do well academically and socially?
