      "The Haunting" is a fictional book about a girl, Lia, whose parents want to move to a house called Graymoss, which was willed to Lia's mother by her great-grandmother when she died. Lia finds out some interesting things about Graymoss that start to worry her. Once she visits the new house, she experiences events that warn her of something haunting the house. "The Haunting" is another book that I have completed from the Joan Lowery Nixon book series. In my opinion, "The Haunting" was not as enjoy [...]

      This book is not the book that makes your skin crawl or makes you whip your head around, looking to see what lurks in the shadows. Despite it's title, this is not a ghost story meant to frighten you. This is a mystery book that simply involves ghosts. That being said, this book was a good read. I enjoyed trying to solve the mystery of who was haunting the Graymoss plantation and why with the main character. I enjoyed the fact that the author actually tied in Edgar Allen Poe stories as the clues [...]

    • I thought the book was very intense, and the story line as it went from problem to problem you would become flabbergasted as you read along in this thriller of a book. I didn't really like it though. It didn't keep you into the story line and I became bored with the book. When the grandmother dies she leaves the house to her grand daughter and but is actually talking to her great grand daughter. and when her grandma tries to sell the place she wont let her becuase it was hers to keep and she int [...]

    • This is a book my 11 year old was interested in reading. She had two chapters left and so I picked it up to see what it was about. The story started out promising, but I figured out the ending well before the main character, which is always a little disappointing. There were phrases that were repeated over and over in the text which droned on and on and on, and the ending didn't come soon enough. The big showdown at the end was rather anti-climatic, but as far as "not-so-spooky, spooky stories" [...]

    • i am a big fan of joan lowery nixon,but i got to admit that this book is one of her best books that she ever wrote. its basicly about a girl that recently found out fascinating secrets and trying to find out what the evil spirits want and trying to get rid of them.

    • I would really like to reread this book, as I haven't actually seen a copy sinceI want to say grade 6. It was one of my first "scary stories" and I remember loving it. Time to pick it up again and see if it's still as good!

    • I would give this book another half of a star if I could, but I found the plot too predictable. Anyone who has read Poe could figure out the ending by the first couple of chapters. I liked the growth of the Lia's character.

    • Definitely my least favourite of Joan Lowery Nixon's books.

    • Loved this book. Very descriptive and kinda scary.

    • this is a really great book!! i loved it!

    • t was really good you'll have to read it

    • This was ok, but a little weird.

      This book is a good quick read. A bit predictable but well written.

    • It was preety good. You should read it!!

    • Great ending, but I belive it deserves a sequal.

    • 2.5. The ending felt rushed, not that I needed to be reminded more of Edgar Allan Poe stories.

    • Compelling, spooky story with an engaging teenage protagonist, a spooky old Southern mansion, and a generations-old family secret.

    • Not a bad story it kept going along smooth and at a nice pace. However I did have the plot way before the book was over. Good story overall for kids to read.

    • Title: The Haunting Author: Joan Lowery Nixon A mysterious but enchanting tale of an old plantation house Graymoss, which was never knocked down or destroyed because of the presence of ghosts that lingered around the house. The magnitude of ghosts that were present in the house was so frightening that everyone who had ever passed through it either died or never wanted to return. What they did not know however was the owner o9f the house had died and was seeking help and his spirit could not rest [...]

    • I enjoyed the book The Haunting very much. I would give this book 4/5 stars. I would definitely recommend it to you. Three reasons why I would recommend this book to you is because of the fear factor, personal narrative and the way the book ended.The fear factor was definitely very enjoyable for me. There were many ghosts whispering into Lia’s (the main characters) ears. Lia would always see dead bodies out of the corner of her eye and then look and they wouldn’t be there. Lia also lives in [...]

    • I wanted to grab a quick read, and this book fit the bill perfectly at 184 pages. It's about a 15 year old girl whose mother inherits a haunted house, Graymoss, in Louisiana and plan to adopt a bunch of hard-to-adopt children with her husband and live there. Problem is, Lia isn't crazy about that idea. The walls whisper one word over and over which no one can quite figure out, the designs on the ceiling turn into hissing and spitting monsters, invisible hands reach out and grab at people's hair [...]

      This book wasn't really good, but I kind of liked it a little bit. This book is about a house that a girl named Charollet used to live in and now she doesn't now. So she wants to keep the house in a good condition, and her grandfather was shot and she would write in her diary about the house. Lia is trying to keep the house in a good condition and she wants to imagine faces in the house and she doesn't want to live in the house. They consider the house as graymoss and there are secrets about the [...]

    • November Book Review So I was kind of disappointed by the book The haunting, by Joan Lowery Nixon. I liked it but at the same time I was disappointed, I was disappointed because it looked like one of those books that i have a surprising ending, but this one the ending was that they found out the mystery and got rid of the ghosts. But overly the book was good. This book I recommend for young adult-teens because from my prospective us teens and/or young adults like mysteries and scary stuff, so [...]

    • This was a terrible book. The writing itself was very badly done, not to mention the story. It was written in a very vague manner that didn't make a whole lot of sense. For example, Lia's mother wanting to adopt 24 children. The woman spends some amount of time in the book exclaiming about it without once caring how unwanted it makes her daughter feel, even though she's a therapist. At one point she even says that the government will give her money to raise them so it's okay. The whole thing is [...]
