Annabelle Sullivan and the Restless Spirit Society by Ivy K. Tyler is about Annabelle, Chloe, Bradley, and the ghost whom only Annabelle can see. No one believes Annabelle when she tells them about the ghost except her friend Chloe. Though she believes Annabelle, Chloe is unable to see the ghost. Annabelle is dating Bradley and she has an interesting summer with Bradley and, not to forget, the ghost.
The author has packed intrigue, mystery, suspense, love, adventure, fantasy, and everything you can think of into this book. The story is crafted with expertise that makes the book very readable. Annabelle's plight when she is attacked by the ghost is scary and mysterious. And to add to this excitement comes her crush with Bradley with whom she intends spending her summer holidays.
Annabelle Sullivan and the Restless Spirit Society has a very young kind of feel, mainly because the characters are young and sprightly. The fantasy and adventure part of the ghost is an added appeal to the young audience. Annabelle's helplessness when her friends and family do not believe in the ghost adds another dimension to the emotions portrayed in the book.
On the whole, it's an excellent, enjoyable read. It takes you on an memorable and interesting trip -- a sort of mixed emotions on a lighter vein. Will her sister Paige believe her story about the ghost? And will Chloe and Bradley finally be able to see the ghost like Annabelle?
