The Ghost Collector

The Ghost Collector Free download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read The Ghost Collector Ew and inspired by stories about the author’s great grandmother’s life The Ghost Collector delves into uestions of grief and loss and introduces an exciting new voice in tween fiction that will appeal to fans of Kate DiCamillo’s Louisiana’s Way Home and Patrick Ness’s A Monster Call. She walks around town and looks for the dead in dark corners and forgotten places She snatched ghosts from alleyways and buildings and takes them home to hide in her room She rescues them This is a book about a girl who not only sees ghosts but catches them and sets them free so that they can go ahead to the afterlife whatever outcome that is That is a gift passed down in her family and she learns it from her grandmother who is known for her expertise ghost catching To make this even better they catch the ghosts by letting down their own hair and letting them get caught in their follicles It s such a simple innovative strategy The Rapunzels of Ghost HuntingThis novel was gorgeous to put it bluntly I m a ghost lover and I won t hide it and Allison Mills did a fantastic job at weaving a story about the paranormal and making it heartbreaking and human The story is about Shelly and her grandmother who catch ghosts Shelly s grandmother is teaching Shelly the basics of ghost catching and Shelly s life has pretty much been all about ghosts IMPORTANT RULE DO NOT BRING GHOSTS BACK HOME when tragedy strikes at home and Shelly s own mother dies The tide turns and so does Shelly s attitude towards ghosts and deathI loved everything about this and this has roots in Cree folklore which I am not familiar with but it is so interesting and lovely and I m happy that this book showcases itThe characters were all fascinating especially Shelly and her grandmother There are so many great lessons to take away from this especially of course regarding loss and death But also life itself and what we can glean from it in the short time we have here on earthThis is definitely one of my favorite reads of 2019 I m still feeling the losses of my grandmothers so I think this read hit me maybe 20 times harder because I was sobbing like no other but it is also really really goodSidenote It was so bizarre and funny to see both my first name AND middle name used in this book First time this has EVER happened while reading haha Amanda and Estelle for anybody curious That s worth getting remembered Thank you very much to Netgalley and Annick Press Ltd for this ARC All opinions are my own Check out haunted reviews on my blog

You can read my full review on my blog The Writerly Way hereMany thanks to Annick Press and NetGalley for an eARC in exchange for an honest unbiased review I don t read as many works inspired by American Indian or First Nations cultures as I d like so when I saw this I jumped on it immediately Mid grade has been so hit or miss for me lately because I ve found a lot of it just ends up being too young for me What I hear you say You who s nearly 30 are now too old for mid grade I know Color me shocked too Who would ve guessed With this book though I was pleasantly surprised because it did have the sort of depth I look for in books The Ghost Collector is the heartbreaking tale of a daughter waiting for her mother s spirit to come back and also the lively funny story of all the other spirits she meets along the wayI honestly wasn t sure what to expect going in but I loved the idea of it and I was surprised just how much I ended up enjoying it I ve been looking for some books for my own mid grade reader and this one ticked all the boxes for me I would definitely recommend it for any mid grade readers who are dealing with grief and loss themselvesMy Thoughts I appreciated how this book normalizes Cree culture rather than presenting it as exotic or other I don t often think authors intend to do this but I do notice that it happens a lot Shelly is proud of her Cree heritage but it isn t the defining feature about her She s not reduced to being this Cree character Nor is she held as a sort of comparison for all these other non Cree characters This is certainly no dissertation about Cree culture but there are little aspects of the culture that were slipped in that I thought would serve as a great place to start the conversation with mid grade readers on other cultures particularly First Nations Hidden in the arguments between Shelly s mother and grandmother over whether she should be involved in ghosts seems to be this really poignant implication about culture being passed down through the generations Shelly s mother grew up with ghosts and for whatever reason as an adult she turned her back on that lifestyle But Shelly s grandmother wants to teach Shelly about the ghosts something that s been directly passed down through their Cree lineage and is a uniue talent most people don t have It s not in your face obvious but I thought it was really interesting how it spoke to this generational culture divide that often happens with any sort of minority and any sort of immigrant even where it s a hard choice between assimilating to the society they live in and wanting to retain part of their culture This is such an important topic faced by so many people in today s world and yet often never discussed and while the author doesn t go in depth on the subject she does a great job of making it matter in even little everyday things That moment when someone has to explain to the protagonist what a tape deck is and her mother is talking about recording songs off the radio when she was young and wow you ve just realized how old you are The protagonist of this story I am not Not any Which actually makes this almost interesting to me because it s really easy to see my own daughter as the protagonist and it makes the events of this story all the impactful from an entirely different and maybe slightly unexpected angle It was super easy for me to straddle both sides of this from a mother terrified of leaving her daughter behind and as a daughter who would have been devastated if her mother had died at that age While there are certainly a lot of heavy moments in this book it isn t all dark and there were so many fun personalities to enjoy Because what s a book without its characters Shelley s grandmother was definitely a highlight for me because she was proud and stubborn but also funny and doing her best But a lot of the characters in this book are ghosts and I loved them just as much The ghosts themselves were for sure a highlight for me in this book because they all had such personality Shelly meets a lot of ghosts in her travels As you do Some are ready to move on and some not so much There was just such a variety with them and I loved meeting a whole range of ghosts and seeing their circumstances The best part as per the Cree worldview humans aren t the only creatures that become ghosts which means plenty of encounters with formerly fuzzy critter spirits too This book hurt my feels in all the right ways because while it is about death and grief it s also about life and acceptance Though it deals with death it doesn t wax philosophical about grief and losing someone Instead the power is in the subtle ways it portrays the grieving process It s in the uiet moments after death absorbing it dying inside while you try to carry on It s in the way you re forced to return to everyday life like nothing s changed even though everything has It s the image of a little girl sitting on her mother s bed waiting because she s so dang certain that her mother s ghost will come for her Just oof The way this book tackles grief is so accessible especially for mid grade readers in my opinion because it doesn t just wallow in it but shows the little ways grief can sneak up on a person While I wouldn t say this is a typical coming of age story necessarily Shelly does manage to find herself and I really enjoyed the growth Shelly s just trying to figure out what the heck it means to be Shelly without losing herself to grief I m always up for a good character arc and I really enjoyed this one partly because it was so stinking relatable even at my age and partly because of the journey Shelly takes It s not uite a normal means of finding one s self Probably because ghosts are involved But as an adult it s easy to start to see the not so great choices the semi spiraling emotions and knowing that eventually things are going to have to giveSticking Points I would ve personally liked to see of the ghosts since some of their arcs felt a bit incomplete I m the sort that likes things to feel done when it ends but there were still uestions I had about some of the ghosts and what became of them etc There was also a part at the end that I didn t uiet understand why something happened either It s such a little nitpicky thing but by the time I finished the book I still just kept wondering like What ever happened to so and so
