Descrição

Elizabeth Webster is happy to stay under the radar (and under her bangs) until middle school is dead and gone. But when star swimmer Henry Harrison asks her to tutor him in math, it's not linear equations Henry really needs help with — it's a flower-scented, poodle-skirt-wearing, head-tossing ghost who's calling out Elizabeth's name.

But why Elizabeth?

Could it have something to do with her missing lawyer father? Maybe. Probably.

If only she could find him. In her search, she discovers more than she is looking for: a grandfather she never knew, a startling legacy, and the secret family law firm Webster & Son, Attorneys for the Damned.

Elizabeth and her friends soon land in court, where demons and ghosts take the witness stand and a red-eyed judge with a ratty white wig hands out sentences like sandwiches. Will Elizabeth's father arrive in time to save Henry Harrison — and is Henry the one who really needs saving?

    Mystery and a bit of paranormal fun.Middle-school math whiz Elizabeth Webster is shocked when the school’s star athlete Henry Harrison asks her to tutor him in math. But, when she shows up at his house, she discovers the real reason he wants her there…a ghost is haunting his house and it is calling her name! Soon, Elizabeth and her friends become embroiled in a web of strange family secrets, otherworldly characters, and a courtroom where demons and ghosts are called as witnesses. And, amidst all of this, they must solve a decades-old mystery to help the ghost so she can finally rest in peace.What I liked: great and unique characters. All of the side characters from Elizabeth’s best friend to her mother to the courtroom’s judge were entertaining and fun. The mystery was woven well into the story and was not so obvious that the reader knew what happened before the end. The reader gets to go along with Elizabeth as she discovers the truth about her family and her own destiny.What I did not like: I found the beginning a bit slow. I also am not sold on the narrator (Elizabeth) saying over and over, at the beginning, how if she only knew what was about to happen, she wouldn’t have gone, etc. However, the last half of the book was incredibly interesting as the kids begin to actually solve the mystery. But then at the very end, the author threw in a scene that left Elizabeth with a number of questions that I suppose will be answered in the next book, but I found that a bit annoying and unsatisfying for the reader.3.5 out of 5 stars

    This was a mysterious, funny, very slightly spooky adventure. A good middle grade read, and probably fun for lawyers. I would read the sequel that should happen.
  • (4/5)
    Elizabeth Webster comes from a family of lawyers, only the family law firm's specialty are some pretty unusual clients. Let's just say they aren't the type of people you and I know, or for that matter, they aren't even people. But Elizabeth is unaware of her heritage until she gets an unusual request from a classmate to help him deal with a ghost who has been haunting his house. Fun and well-written, this new series is a going to be a great one to recommend for middle schoolers.
