[ Pdf Jade Green: A Ghost Story ä army-of-northern-virginia PDF ] by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor ↠´ Just picked this up from the library today I ve read some other stuff by the same author, but this is definitely totally different cause it s kind of historical fiction Seems ok, but it s pretty short, lol.
I finished this at about four in the morning It s not terribly scary, but sort of suspenseful SPOILERS The disembodied hand of Jade Green was interesting I never really got the feeling that it wanted to hurt Judith, but then again, I had the luxury of reading the book, and not actually having the experiences I d imagine, if it actually happened to me, I d be pretty freaked, too.
I thought that Jade Green was fairly predictable, but almost in a good way The end wasn t really a surprise at all MAJOR SPOILERS because discovering that Charles killed Jade was pretty much made obvious to the reader Even so, it was still an awesome momen A mix or romance, rumors, horror, and a murderous stalker, this book has a bit of everything What I liked about this book though, was that it was predictable but not in a way that the author tried to hide it You knew who killed Jade from the beginning but it was still thrilling and suspenseful A very difficult thing to accomplish.

As I read this, I realized that I ve read it before, a long time ago, because snippets of it were familiar and I knew what was going to happen just before it did though not the overall plot Oh, the pre Goodreads days.
This is a short, well written Victorian ghost story Younger readers teens might find this adequately spooky, but as usual as soon as we re shown the spooky thing, it s not scary to me any Still, I d recommend this to fans of the genre.
The ending was such a twist Judith s cousin Charles was acting weird all along He set the house on fire but they got out When they were evacuating for the hurricane and Judith stayed behind to help board the house, she went upstairs to pack her bag and Charles came up and tried to rape her The ghostly hand that had been running around kill Charles It turns out that he tried to do the same thing with Jade Green but she didn t make it Charles killed her.
Okay, I m sorry, but I just wasn t in love with this one To begin with, it s got that stick up the butt pseudo Victorian narrator voice that great children s authors of the 1980s always seem to adopt when they re writing about the 1800s think Cynthia Voigt in The Callender Papers I hate that voice Also, the whole thing just seemed muddled to me Age wise, I mean, not plot wise See, the story s about Judith, this orphan who comes to live with her uncle after her mom dies in an INSANE ASYLUM wooooo , and the only stipulation that her uncle has is that she CAN T BRING THE COLOR GREEN INTO THE HOUSE But of course she does, because GIRLS IN THESE books NEVER LISTEN, and the house immediately becomes haunted Because it turns Orphaned Judith Sparrow had been given everything by her uncle when she arrived penniless, and even still she has disobeyed him In the exciting horror novel Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Judith never thought she would be so lucky Her uncle had taken her to live in his house in Whispers, South Carolina All seemed well, but that is about to change.
There is only one big rule her uncle has that she must keep Nothing green is allowed in the house Judith thinks nothing of it every family has something odd about them She promises her uncle she will leave anything green behind, but she doesn t keep her word for long She has only one possession of her dead mother, a picture fitted in a lovely green silk frame
