Lots of big things have been happening to Rose lately. She went from being an orphan to being a magician’s apprentice in what seemed like moments and she’s still trying to wrap her head around that when she’s tossed into another quandry.

A moment’s glance in a mirror causes Rose to rethink everything she’s ever believed.

Rose grew up hoping that her parents were dead – that would be the only reason she was left at the orphanage, right? – but when she sees an older version of herself in a looking glass, Rose begins to hope that she may have a family at last.

But will she be able to solve the mystery before it’s too late?

Hott Review:

What I liked: Rose and the Silver Ghost was so much fun! Even I couldn’t put it down! I really enjoyed not only the plot but the characters. It was fun and imaginative – I’ve not read anything like this before!
One of my favorite things about this is how Ms. Webb builds vocabulary. Without being preachy, she uses uncommon vocabulary and then explains it in such a way that it feels like part of the story and not a lesson.
Although this is intended for middle-graders, it’s appropriate for younger readers and many would love to have it read to them!!
What I didn’t like: The beginning of Rose and the Silver Ghost was quite confusing. I think that Ms. Webb is trying to catch us up on what happened in the other books so this can be a stand-alone read but, there is a LOT of info and it’s a bit confusing until we get into the meat of the story.
