Misty Gordon and the Mystery of the Ghost Pirates by Kim Kennedy

Misty Gordon and the Mystery of the Ghost Pirates by Kim Kennedy, is a very good book. At first when I saw the book cover (and this might happen to you) I got very confused.

The first things you see on the cover of this book are two girls (one in cat-eye glasses), a crystal ball (with a pirate ship in it), little golden statues of the "Big Three" (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades), a group of (ghost) pirates, and a lighthouse (super high-tech, but it doesn't matter when you're starting the book). As you read the book all of the things on the cover begin to make sense. 

Misty Gordon and the Mystery of the Ghost Pirates is about a girl named Misty Gordon whose dad runs the D.E.A.D. ( Deceased’s Estate and Antique Dealer) business. One day Misty is in the businesses van with her dad to go check out a house. Once they get there Misty' dad tells her that the house used to belong to a recently departed clairvoyant. Soon she finds a a pair of "cat-eye" glasses, that her dad edges her to keep. Misty tries them on and she sees a mysterious woman in the doorway. Misty walks away and after that her life takes a surprising turn...

I think people in 4th-6th grade will like this book (I read it in 5th grade). I think they will like it because it has an interesting plot. Though, younger kids wouldn't like it because they wouldn't be able to follow the plot, as it is a bit confusing. Also, older people might think it is too childish, but if you're like anybody in my family you will have a wonderful time reading this book!
