City of Ghosts Reviews
(2.5) Well this was a disappointment but I suppose it's partly my fault.
I didn't realize this was a Middle Grade book which isn't my cup of tea. Schwab's forte is her writing in my opinion and unfortunately a MG book doesn't show it AT ALL.
This was a quick read and a little girl seeing ghosts wasn't uninteresting but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are 12 or under, or usually love MG.
Me, in a crowd of Schwab fans: so am I like not allowed here anymore or what
I mean, this isn’t a bad 3-star, and I didn’t HATE it. It’s so atmospheric and creepy, in Schwab fashion of course, and I did enjoy it. I think one of Schwab’s best writing talents is her ability to create fantastically strange and mysterious concepts, and that’s clearly evident in this book.

This was so much fun! I can’t wait to see what kind of shenanigans Cassidy and Jacob get up to next.
A girl who almost drowned.
The ghost boy who pulled her back.
A very haunted city.
I am really proud of this book. I hope you guys enjoy it.
“My life is-
Air in starving lungs.
A hand grabbing mine.
A light in the dark.
The pebbles beneath me on the frozen bank, and water dripping from my hair,
and Jacob saying, “I’ve got you.”
Cassidy was dead once. Well, nearly.
But someone, something saved her.
A ghost, named Jacob. Now he’s her best friend and he’s always by her side.
When her parents start a new documentary, Cassidy goes on a new adventure to Schottland.
Even though I absolutely adore Victoria Schwab, her writing styl ...more
Schwab and her covers never disappoint.
