It kept me interested the entire time and I couldn't put it down. In fact, I finished the book in a day. This is a book that anyone of any age would enjoy. I would recommend this book both to young children and adults alike. This book is about a teenager, Tess, who feels like her father is a little overprotective. She was in an accident when she was young which made her father uneasy for a very long time. Over the course of the novel, Tess meets Cain who is a young Native American boy who is being sent on a quest. Cain's we-eh (Native American grandfather) tells him that he and Tess are to go on his journey together. Together, Tess and Cain rescue a baby albino deer from a group of poachers and deliver it safely to a mystical albino deer herd near Manitowish Waters. This book is intriguing and full of suspense. It is fun to watch Tess and Cain go through their journey as they run from poachers and try to get to where they want to go. The ending is happy and perfect. The character development is great in this book which I always love. All the characters go through amazing development that helps shape the novel. The writing style was perfect. I never felt like the story was rushed or was going to slow. Overall, it was just right. I really enjoyed this book and am glad I won it in the giveaway. This will definitely stay on my bookshelf for many years to come!

    Full of ambiguous mystery, Ghosts of Manitowish Waters seems to be an adventure story with a battle against poachers aiming to destroy a rare albino deer. And young, impressionable Tess is suddenly thrown into the path of medicine men and a dangerous hunt. But where did ghosts tie into all this? Was she supposed to be like a golden child, “the chosen one,” that would see dead deer?

Was she supposed to be like a golden child, “the chosen one,” that would see dead deer? Set against the backdrop of the secluded Indian plains, the story is expressed in a lushly lyrical language; however, it didn’t quite grab me as much as I had hoped. Not only was it challenging to understand the mystical powers of the Indian tribes, but the fact that the poachers were protected under the government made it more complex. I just didn’t find it interesting.

    The main characters in this story, Tess and Cain, are two troubled teens, both struggling in different areas. The adventure they take is, for each of them, a journey of discovery. Tess has had a terrible accident in her past and lost her mother and sister and is dealing with an over protective father. Cain, is discovering his Native American heritage against his parents wishes.

The adventure they take is, for each of them, a journey of discovery. Tess has had a terrible accident in her past and lost her mother and sister and is dealing with an over protective father. Cain, is discovering his Native American heritage against his parents wishes. After stumbling upon a group of poachers that are after the rare albino deer, they are off to save the albino fawn and deliver him to the sacred ground that the Ojibewe tribe tells about. With the poachers hot on their heels, they travel through the woods and come upon many challenges. With close calls, and ghostly fog, they continue their quest to Manitowish Waters and Lost Creek. Along the way, I feel they both discover their own strengths within themselves. I think Tess learns more about herself, but Cain is also learning about himself and his heritage. Several times, you think their luck has finally run out and they won't be able to complete their journey, but then “something” always steps in to help them out. Maybe the spirits of the Native American people have a hand in this. After the completion of the quest, the kids are found and Tess is whisked away to be checked out and Cain is arrested and taken to jail. The poaching ring is uncovered and punished. Eventually it all works out for the best. I liked the characters and the story line. I loved the Native American feel to the story. I think that in the end the story tells us that in life there is so much going on that we must learn to balance it all out. And sometimes that means taking a “journey” whether physically, mentally, or emotionally to establish that balance and learn to live our lives peacefully and to come to terms with who we are and are meant to be. Geared more towards the YA crowd, it is also a decent read for adults. ***I received this copy courtesy of a Good Reads Give away***

    First I am not the target audience for this book. It is targeted at middle school age. But do not let that stop you from reading. Ghost of Manitowish Waters is a clean coming of age story revolving around two teens on a destined adventure. Tess, a girl with a tragic accident making her only parent over protective to the ninth degree, breaking free and Cain, a misguided teen learning more of his family history and culture.

Tess, a girl with a tragic accident making her only parent over protective to the ninth degree, breaking free and Cain, a misguided teen learning more of his family history and culture. Their quest is to deliver an albino baby deer to a safe place in the face of dangerous obstacles. But there is as many people to help as there is to hinder. The characters are believable and information regarding them trickle throughout the book. Not once did I question if it was possible for them to make it. There was realistic parental worry and police involvement when Tess is found missing. G.M Moore writes well and stays spot on with the targeted audience even winning over the older crowd. GoMW is evenly paced and has solid world building. It’s a sweet, slow burn adventure novel. I enjoyed the storyline and all of the characters. The cultural information is interesting and make it for a unique approach to this coming of age story. The cover is pretty, but doesn’t do the book justice. Also, there wasn’t that many ghosts. The title and description makes you think that are actual ghosts. There was a short mention towards spirits in a cemetery. But it really doesn’t explain why (besides the obvious) why the deer were called Ghosts. But towards the end, there is a creepy ghost vibe. Overall, not too many complaints regarding this book. GoMW was immersive and well thought out plot-wise. I give 4 out of 5 stars.

    While I'm way beyond the target audience for this novel, I enjoyed it very much and wished it had been longer. I'm hoping for a sequel or at least more like this from the author. This was non-stop adventure and very hard to put down. I read the first half in one sitting. The good guys were very likeable and I cared about them, while the bad guys satisfyingly got what they deserved - I was pleasantly surprised that the author did not shy away from that and she did it in a way that was not simply While I'm way beyond the target audience for this novel, I enjoyed it very much and wished it had been longer.

The good guys were very likeable and I cared about them, while the bad guys satisfyingly got what they deserved - I was pleasantly surprised that the author did not shy away from that and she did it in a way that was not simply gratuitous violence. Refreshingly too, this story is free from gratuitous "romance" while still making the vestiges of my 15-year-old girl's heart go thumpity-thump for the male lead. My only complaint is that I wished the fulfillment of the quest had been more meaningful - it seemed a bit of a let down after the adventure of getting that far. A sequel could perhaps address that (hint, hint). Nice regional focus on northern Wisconsin, the gigantic Chequamegon Forest, the Ojibwe natives, and the fascinating albino deer herd (as a lifelong Wisconsinite, they nevertheless amaze me). Again, I am hoping for more in this vein from the author even though I'm much older than the intended reader. I received a free copy from the author thru the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a review.

    Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Review I managed to reach chapter eight (page 762) on my second read and after I saw that I couldn’t go on, I stopped. I loved the simple cover, the wonderful reviews and the blurb. I thought that this book could be great, but it fell short (for me).

For me the characters were boring and plot didn’t made me want to turn the page and read more. If I stop caring about what’s going to happen next, then for me it’s time to stop reading (sorry). Said that, if you think you might like the story after reading the blurb and the reviews, I say… go for it, as you might like it a lot but for me… Well, we didn’t click.

    I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own. So suspensful. I read it in one sitting. What happens when you have an over protective parent? You rebel. I understood Tess's father being overprotective. I became that overprotective parent after my son was run over while playing in our front yard. If it had not been for my marriage to a wonderful man who was patient with me while teaching me it was okay to give my son and daughter some freedom, I would have rema I received a copy to facilitate my review.

I became that overprotective parent after my son was run over while playing in our front yard. If it had not been for my marriage to a wonderful man who was patient with me while teaching me it was okay to give my son and daughter some freedom, I would have remained that overprotective parent. For Tess, her rebellion causes her to meet Cain and start a quest with him. The quest will put them in danger from poachers. They are trying to protect the white deer. There is a large herd of these albino deer in Wisconsin and the author did a great job of making this plight known through this story. Sometimes it is necessary to do what you know is right. That is a lesson taught in this book. This is a wonderful, mysterious read.

    This is a twist on ghost stories. Tess,and Cain are some very advantageous teens. They go in search of a legend ghost but what they find is something that they were not suspecting. These unlikely teens became friends in search of the legend and what came after the legend was solved was amazing. The journey that is taken and told about the Native Americans on this journey is one that is suspenseful.
