The Quantum Ghost by Jonathan Ballagh
On a cold autumn night, twelve-year-old Remi Cobb makes a startling discovery—a mysterious object floating on the pond in her backyard. With no idea where it came from, or how it got there, Remi is compelled to unravel its secrets. Her quest for answers takes her on a perilous journey across realities, where she finds a crumbling world—and the dark forces behind its ruin. Here she learns the truth about her connection with the strange object, and of those that will stop at nothing to destroy them both.
But even if she can find a way to survive, can she find a way home?
When Jonathan Ballagh asked me if I would like to read this book I couldn't say yes fast enough! I really enjoyed The Quantum Door so I was really excited to read The Quantum Ghost. Even though both books are geared for middle grade readers, I really enjoyed them both.
If you haven't read The Quantum Door yet, no worries! You can still read The Quantum Ghost and not be lost! Remi is a whole new protagonist, I love her btw, and the story is different as well. Brady and Felix, boys from the previous book, are mentioned and explained a bit but you won't necessarily feel the loss of the first book if you don't read it first. Although, you really should read The Quantum Door anyways!
I actually read the first book right at a year ago while on vacation and I read this book while vacationing as well! They seem to be great vacation reads for me. Not too long and not too short. Just the right amount for good world and character building. Especially good for middle grade readers who tend to shy away from somewhat lengthier books.
Thank you, Jonathan Ballagh, for another great book!
