2018 book 50

Jaclyn Moriarty's The Ghosts of Ashbury High
Sometimes I like this conclusion to the Ashbury/Brookfield series more than others--the story is told primarily through essay tests which I find to be an unusual storytelling device. Of course, it is also told through fairly hilarious blog posts and comments. And the story itself is moving, bringing Australian history and Irish folklore into the complicated teenage lives at its center. An interesting way to wrap up these characters' lives, for sure.
