About the Book

Theresa  looks back at her new ghost friend. “I’m sorry, could you repeat that, Stanley?” She listens, and a slow smile begins to grow. “Really? No, we weren’t planning on it.”
“What?” I pull some more tissue from the box. “What weren’t we planning?”
“A trip to England. He says we’ll be going soon.”
“We are?” Doubtful, but not one to argue with ghosts, I blow my nose and say, “That’s nice. I haven’t seen my gran for over a year.”

A few weeks later, Stanley’s words come true, and Theresa, her brother Joey, and her friend Kerry find themselves in London, England. Of course, they expect to spot one or two ghosts as they tour the Tower of London, but they don’t expect to meet the ghosts of two young murdered princes with an urgent request: find their hidden five-hundred-year-old remains.

The princes want their bones to be buried at Westminster Abbey, where they belong, but something doesn’t want that to happen. The kids find a lot of spirit helpers along the way. Who knew England had so many ghosts? Can three kids and their ghostly friends solve a centuries-old unsolved crime that rocked England?


Praise

“This is a great book to read with your tweener or younger sophisticated child. It is filled with elements that are sure to broaden a young mind, in knowledge and possibilities, the best part? They’ll just think it is F-U-N. As a mother who enjoyed reading with my son when he was young, I wish this fun book had been around then.” — Maria Catalina Egan, Defining Ways

“Oh how I wish this book existed when I was in middle school! While the children’s horror genre seems to be dominated by R.L. Stine (nothing wrong with that, I’m a huge fan), Diana Corbitt offers a fresh set of characters to children searching for a fright. Kerry, Theresa, and Joey are people I would have loved to befriend as a child, it was so fun having the opportunity to ghost hunt with them for a while.” — thebibliophagist.org

“Until I read Scary Stories for Young Foxes and now Ghosters 3, I had no idea middle grade horror was so effective. I loved being scared when I was a kid, and though Ghosters 3 emphasizes teamwork, inclusiveness, and adventure, there are also scary and tense moments kids (and adults) will enjoy.” — Richard Leis, Book Reviews

“Trying to think back to what I was reading in elementary school and middle school, it is safe to say it was not this book. This book would have rocked my world, but I couldn’t find anything like it when I was growing up. I wish I had access to this book and this series. It was perfect for my nerdy self. These kids were wholesome, smart, and just kids I would have gone wild over as a kid. These are the sorts of heroes I want in books.” — Review, MI Book Reviews
