Horror/Mystery: Series - Kid Ghost Protagonist

Jun. 6, 2023, 7:56 pm


I have been trying to find this book I read in high school - I graduated in 2018.
I believe I read it in 2016 or 2017.

The Cover:

(I THINK) It was of a black kid male with half of his face on the cover, could be wrong.

The Plot:

The first entry into the series was about a Protagonist kid from a town, he makes friends with other kids in the town but is hunted down by something then at the end he eventually dies and becomes a ghost, the next (2nd) entry of the series follows another kid Protagonist who was friends of the (1st) Kid who died at the end of the (1st book) who is now a ghost and helps his alive friend (who is now the new protagonist) solve the Ghost Kids Murder

TL:DR Plot:

Supernatural series featuring a protagonist child who befriends town residents but meets a tragic end, transforming into a ghost. The sequel introduces a new protagonist, a former friend of the deceased child, who receives spectral assistance from the deceased child in solving the murder of that ghost child.

Key Words:

spectral protagonist, childhood friendship, murder investigation, paranormal sequel, ghost protagonist, town friendship, supernatural pursuit, tragic demise, spectral transformation, new protagonist, murder investigation, spectral assistance

Written When?:

I THINK it was written (19 years ago: about 2003... maybe a few years older than or earlier than that)

Book's intended audience:

I believe it was a little bit much for middle schoolers but best made for all high schoolers.

>1 Jackson2000: It doesn't quite fit, but the first thing that comes to mind is Ghost Boys. Are you maybe thinking of the cover from that?
