Ghost Buddy #2: Mind If I Read Your Mind? Review

Do you have a kiddo that loves to read?  Does your kiddo like to read series?  My son Matt has been an avid reader since elementary school.   He loves book that come in a series.  He wants to read more and more about what is going on.  One book is just not enough.  I grew up reading Scholastic books.  And now he is growing up reading them too.

Check out Scholastic’s release of Ghost Buddy #2: Mind If I Read Your Mind? by New York Times-bestselling authors Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. Ghost Buddy #2 is the follow-up book to the very successful 1st in the series, Ghost Buddy: Zero to Hero. 
“Billy and Hoover are back in the hilarious new series from bestselling authors Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver!It's time for Moorepark Middle School's annual Speak Out Challenge, and Billy Broccoli thinks he's got it made. With his best friend Hoover Porterhouse—the ghost with the most—by his side, Billy’s got the competition in the bag. Who wouldn't vote for a demonstration on mind reading?But when Billy lands a spot on the sixth-grade team, he starts spending more time with his new teammates than he does with Hoover. And the Hoove plays second fiddle to no one! If Billy's not careful, his secret weapon might just vanish into thin air, leaving Billy to pick up the pieces of a demonstration-day disaster!” 

My thoughts-I like that this book is about Billy in middle school.  My son Matt is entering 8th grade this year.  He so could relate to middle adventures.  Like in the book, I can so relate to a friend feeling outcast.  And when it all blows over, it can really explode.  It is a great read, even for a grown up.
