Payton’s Review:

The Doll in the Garden is an awesome book. My favorite character is Ashley. She and her mom have just moved into a new town. They have a new apartment , but it is right above a grumpy old lady named Mrs. Cooper. Ashley meets her new best friend, Kristi. There is also a “ghost cat” named Snowball, who magically seems to disappear. Ashley’s cat is scared of him and doesn’t like Snowball, but Ashley does. They have many adventures together. Although they fight sometimes, they work it out.

If you like ghosts and mysteries, you’ll love this book. It is mostly for 11 and 12 year old kids. There are some sad parts at the end, and you may want to cry. This story is really good. If you like mysteries and ghost stories, you’ll love this book!

Education Value: 4 out of 5 – I rate this book a 4 because you learn about making friends in a new place, but it’s more of a good book to sit down and read.

Entertainment Value: 5 out of 5 – I gave this book a 5 because it has my favorite thing, ghosts! I loved the main character Ashley too and all of her adventures.
