Lucas Mackenzie has got the best job of any ten-year-old boy. He travels from city-to-city as part of the London Midnight Ghost Show, scaring unsuspecting show-goers year round. Performing comes naturally to Lucas and the rest of the troupe, who’ve been doing it for as long as Lucas can remember. But there’s something Lucas doesn’t know. Like the rest of Lucas's friends, he’s dead. And for some reason, Lucas can’t remember his former life, his parents or friends. Did he go to school? Have a dog? Brothers and sisters? If only he could recall his former life, maybe even reach out to his parents, haunt them. When a ghost hunter determines to shut the show down, Lucas realizes the life he has might soon be over. And without a connection to his family, he will have nothing. There’s little time, and Lucas has much to do. Keep the lights on! Lucas Mackenzie’s coming to town.
I am going to start off with, of course, the amazing cover. Because I am a complete sucker for a great cover. It’s the first thing someone sees, and it PULLS a reader in. This one did just that. Great job Month9Books!
This book, I really liked. It was a great middle school book, that in the future I will let my daughter read. ( It’s still a bit too early for her. ) Lucas has quite the job for his age, and that involves running into some unexpected creatures along the way. Ghosts, vampires, the adventure never ends for him. He goes on quite the quest to find his friend Yorick, and trying to find his family. He felt it was time for him to find out more about where he was from. A fantastic story of finding out who you are, and growing up.
The characters are lovable, the adventure is great, with some comedy mixed in. I would recommend it to kids over the age of 10, looking to fall in love with a new character, and a wonderful story.
