***My Personal Review***
I found this a very intriguing book for all ages :) I loved the fact that even though Mindy didn't speak, you always knew what she was trying to say and understood! It takes place in a haunted house that they are living in, and although all of the kids realize it is haunted by something, Mindy is really the only one who seems to completely comprehend the mystery. I was amazed by the ending, and definitely think it left an opening for another book which is awesome, and I would most definitely read it! Very delightful read for kids, I think they will get a kick out of the fun and imagination that the kids in the book have :) I think it would also appeal to kids on a different level because it can show them that there are other ways of communication and it doesn't necessarily have to be spoken to get a point across. Totally loved, can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
