The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts

Kat Preston has been trying to believe that ghosts don’t exist ever since one wanted to take over her body many years ago.  Telling herself that there are no unbelievable helps to keep them away. She is keeping them at bay until a research job takes her to Castle Creighton, where a grisly wedding day murder has remained unsolved for many years. A research assistant, Evan Kingsley, from the university is one of the people accompanying her on her mission and he definitively doesn’t believe in ghosts. When the two search the room where the murders took place they are transported through a magical mirror to the past where they find themselves in the bodies of two of the people who knew the murdered couple. Will they finally be able to piece together what happened to the bride and groom on their wedding day over one hundred years ago?  Can Evan and Kat make it back to their own bodies in the present time or will they be trapped forever?

I truly enjoyed reading The Girl Who Ignored Ghosts by K.C. Tansley. The supernatural elements in the book were very appealing to me and the fact that Kat had experiences with ghosts when she was young drew me right into the story. I was very worried when she was going to Castle Creighton because I knew she would no longer be able to block out the unbelievable, but I also understood it was something she needed to do to put everything to rest. I have always loved old mirrors and I enjoyed the magical elements attached to the one in this book. The world of the unbelievables is well explained and I was on the edge of my seat as Kat and Evan found themselves in the bodies of two people who were connected to the bride and groom. I started off not being a fan of Evan, but as the two traveled back in time I came to like him more and so did Kat. The way the pieces of the puzzle came together was fascinating and it was fun trying to solve the case with Kat. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy books with ghosts, magic, and other supernatural elements. Young adults and adults will get caught up in the mystery and will be turning the pages to find out how it all turns out!
