Imagine finally going to the school of your dreams and being told you could choose for yourself what subject you wished to study. Imagine seeing things you shouldn’t be seeing, things that aren’t normal. Imagine, too, becoming the host of a restless ghost. That’s the plight of sixteen-year-old Jimmy Chartron as he begins his educational journey at the Navale Academy of Eagleon, a very prestigious school where only the brightest young minds are invited to study. The worst part is the ghost invasion, as she (and it’s definitely a she) insists he does dangerous deeds and then jump, both physically and literally, into the unknown. But that’s not the direst of circumstances as Jimmy finds himself ensnared in a seemingly hopeless battle against evil never before seen (or at least, not in a very long time). And all he can depend on is his own skills and wit and that annoying ghost in his head.
J.T. Michaels’ young adult novel, Jimmy Chartron and the Lost Keystone, is a magical fantasy that will capture the reader’s attention from the start and carry them through one thrilling adventure after another to the very end. I couldn’t put it down. With the magic and whimsical nature of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, the battles between good and evil fill this story, driving it forward with relentless energy. The plot follows an epic journey with detailed descriptive narratives that really set the stage. The characters are well developed and young readers will instantly relate to the good and the bad amongst the student population. Dialogue is well structured and believable. This is an engaging and entertaining read, a real classic.
