It's late at night, and you're on a tour of a so-called haunted house. You see something out of the corner of your eye and quickly snap a photo. Your hands tremble as you lower the camera. Your eyes widen as you stare at the image you've just captured. A face seems to be lurking in the background. But when you look up, there's no one standing there! Was it a ghost?

Ghost sightings are reported all the time. Many are easily explained. Others are harder to dismiss. But is there any proof? To find out, Kelly Milner Halls explored haunted houses. She examined photographs and investigated eyewitness accounts from ghost hunters, mediums, and paranormal experts. What's the verdict? Are the spirits of the dead wandering among us? Explore her findings and decide for yourself.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This engaging selection takes a nonsensational, rational look at aspects of the paranormal: ghosts, haunted locales, ghost hunters, and supernatural hoaxes. Incorporating personal accounts from both believers and skeptics, the author presents balanced coverage, exposing obvious frauds and deceptions alongside occurrences that defy rational explanation. The graphically intense layout features sidebars, inserts, and photos, and reluctant readers will appreciate both the eye-catching images and the manageable text, organized into brief chapters. Events are documented through detailed source notes, and additional resources include a glossary, a bibliography, further reading suggestions, and lists of sites haunted houses, hotels, cemeteries, ships, and battle sites for further research. Young readers might be particularly interested in a feature that provides directions on how to create fake ghost photos. The spooky cover, storylike narrative style, and subject matter are sure attention-getters, and the accessible format will appeal to researchers and browsers alike. This will be a welcome addition for school and public collections, especially where series such as Rosen's Haunted: Ghosts and the Paranormal have been popular.--McBroom, Kathleen Copyright 2014 Booklist"
