Ghost Club 1: The New Kid, Deborah Abela

A slightly spooky but mostly funny series about the mischief ghosts can make - and the kids who take care of the mess.

Angeline and Edgar might be kids, but they're also two of Ghost Club's youngest ghost-catchers. Got a problem with a ghost, poltergeist or ghoul? Can't sleep because of all the rattling chains and cackling laughter? Angeline and Edgar are the experts to call.

So it's entirely logical that when new kid Dylan joins Ghost Club, Angeline and Edgar are the perfect candidates to introduce him to everything he needs to know, from which ghost-catching gadget will do the trick to when to run like crazy to avoid being splattered with ectoplasm.

The trouble is, Dylan's not quite sure he wants to be a ghost-catcher . . .

"A spook-tacular read!" - Total Girl

"Abela's wonderfully idiosyncratic characters light up the pages in this ghostly romp that never becomes too serious or scary. The first instalment in a brilliant new series that is the perfect mix of funny and clever, quirky and cute." - Aleesah Darlison, Sun Herald

"Humorous, at times spooky, mystery, with clever, likeable protagonists and a premise that will keep readers entertained." - Clare Hingston, Magpies

Deborah Abela

Having always been short and a bit of a coward, Deborah Abela dreamed of being braver and stronger, which is probably why she writes books about spies, ghosts, soccer legends and characters good with swords who take on sea monsters and evil harbour lords. She is the author of the Max Remy Superspy series, Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series, Ghost Club series, The Remarkable Secret Of Aurelie Bonhoffen, Grimsdon and New City. She's won awards for her books but mostly hopes, one day, to be as brave as the characters inside. Deborah is also a Room to Read ambassador.
