Publisher's Summary

The hit series is back, to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters! 

Dawn has always thought there was a secret passage hidden in her house. But that doesn't explain why creepy things happen when Dawn's at home, or the spooky noises coming from behind her bedroom wall. 

Dawn is sure there's a ghost in her house! And so are the other Baby-Sitters Club members. But they're so busy with their jobs that they don't have time for a ghost hunt. Will Dawn and her friends solve the mystery...or will Dawn have to share her house with a ghost?

I have been on a quest to revisit my childhood reading favorites. When I was a child, I loved the Babysitters Club books. I devoured them. I read those, along with the Super Specials, Mysteries, Little Sister books, etc. In fact, I still have all of them to this day in paperback. They were such a big part of my love of reading, I could not part with them. So now that they have come out on Audiobook, I had to check them out. As it turns out, I am not too old to enjoy The Baby-sitters Club. It kind of feels like going home again.

The Ghost at Dawn's House is book 9 in the Baby-sitters Club series. In this book, Dawn has been hearing noises behind her walls. She ends up finding a secret passage that leads from the barn to a secret door in her bedroom. This book was pretty blah. Obviously, it turns out that a person has been causing the noises and such, however, there are a few things that are unexplained and they are just left so we don't get closure.

This book is a fairly quick listen and is only 3 hours and 10 minutes. The narrator for this book talked very slowly. I had to speed it up significantly just to listen at what I consider to be a normal speed.

My love for these books and the nostalgia is still strong but definitely heading toward the downward slope. I will take a break to read another book or two and then come back to this series for book 10.

I love secret passages.

This is one that I loved as a kid and enjoyed again.

It's funny and so true to how teenagers react to ghost stories. I like a good ghost mystery and I love secret passages.

I also really like the narrator's voice for Dawn. My favorite so far.

Great Book!

I LOVE this book! Ann M Martin sure does have a way with words. I liked how the story went and it was a calming thing to listen to while I was drawing. Since quarantine, I have been listening to a lot of audible and It has been one thing that kept me sane. I suggest you start with the first book and progress through the series, don't read this one first!
