Destiny And Faith's Summer Adventures (Volume 2) by Teddy O'Malley is an exciting story for kids. It is summer holidays and Destiny and Faith have new neighbors, who have a little boy called Dustin. Dustin is deaf but then Destiny and Faith know sign language. The house that the new neighbors have moved into is supposed to be haunted. Dustin's mom gives them the job of cleaning the attic and tells them to go there the next day if they wanted another job. That night they see the ghost of Mr. Jenkins in the window. The girls sign to Dustin to tell him that the ghost is in the window. Will Dustin's family be able to live in that house peacefully without being disturbed by the ghost? Will the ghost be able to chase out the two girls?

This delightful story book for kids is entertaining and educational. The alphabet sign language chart at the end of the book is helpful and kids can actually practice it after they read the story. The illustrations make it more visual and give movement and life to the scenes and characters. Apart from a great story line, it also introduces kids to new concepts in learning and acceptance of others. The characters of the other two girls in the book, Jourdana and Jourdonna, have been handled well by the author. I liked the fact that the author includes a deaf child in the story and shows how life can be difficult for these kids.
