    1. I thought this was a very intriguing and interesting story that really got you thinking about what is going to happen next. It was a great story line an I could never put the book down. I normally don't really read as fast as I read this book and I think everyone should read it because I makes you feel like you are in the story with the characters and you can really visualise the setting. It is a really good read and I defiantly recommend it to everyone, adults, teenagers or young adults.



    2. I liked Ghost in My Suitcasebut did not think it anything special. In fact, I found the use of present tense rather than past to be a little annoying. It is the cultural references that make it worth reading, although they tend to sit under the storyline a little. I would recommend it to upper primary (elementary) students or poorer Middle School readers. I had hoped to link it to my Ancient China history unit -it mentions Ancient China from a modern context- but I suspect it is too easy a read [...]


    3. #ownvoices diverse Australian middle grade ghost story? Yes please!Celeste is half Chinese and half French and traveling from Australia to China by herself to visit her mother's mother and scatter her mother's ashes in her homeland. There she meets Ting Ting, a girl her grandmother adopted, learns from her grandmother how to be a ghost-hunter and works to solve an old family mystery.I definitely loved it and would recommend it, but I'd like to warn for some casual ableism and fatphobia below.Pag [...]


    4. Celeste is nervous but excited about travelling to China from Australia, to see her Grandmother. Celeste is taking her Mum’s ashes to scatter them in the Isle of Clouds, where her mother grew up and her ancestors are from. When she first arrives, there is another girl staying with Por Por (Celeste’s Grandmother), and she is mean to Celeste.Despite Ting Ting’s nastiness, Celeste is loving the sights and smells of the city her grandmother lives in. She soon discovers Ting Ting is an orphan w [...]


    5. Celeste travels to China for the first time to visit her grandmother, Por Por. She has a sad duty to perform; Celeste is carrying her mother's ashes back to her childhood home to scatter them. Celeste feels lost and insecure, and tells the reader " Before Mama died I felt as if I could wrap up the day and put it in my pocket now I feel trapped, as if I'm in a giant spiderweb."Por Por frees Celeste by loving her and helping her discover her heritage, her Chinese culture, and her family's calling [...]


    6. I guess the best way I can convince people by saying this book is absolutely amazing is by saying I still get my youngest sister to borrow it for me from her library so I can read it. I've read it literally 23 times and I still fall in love with the compelling story and heart-warming characters. I can hands down and proudly say that this is my all time favourite childhood novel and I still read it today. Its one of those books Ill pull out in 20 years time and hand it to my child and say "this u [...]


    7. Chinese culture meets supernatural. When Celeste's mother dies she takes her ashes to back to China and meets her grandma Paw paw and her adopted daughter Ting ting. As Celeste gets to know her Paw paw, she begins to learn skills in the family profession of ghost hunting. But it will take all her strength and courage to help her Grandmother overcome the family nemisis who stole their home.


    8. A better ghost story to recommend to children rather than Mr Midnight. The only scary parts are when the main characters are fighting the ghosts (they are ghost-hunters) but mostly love that the backdrop of the story is in China, so that we get a glimpse into its culture.


    9. i liked this book, but it's nothing special. I thought it was really interesting to see the transition from Australia to China through Celest's eyes. i think she settles in really well,but i wasn't really sure that it had an aweful lot to do with immigration.


    10. Mystery, horror and adventure is the main point of this book. This book has the "spell" that kept me addicted to this book and I just love it! I love this author's writing style and her other books as well. Lovely cover design. Excitement comes up when you're deeply drowned in this book!



    11. it was such a good bok i loved it because i like ghost stories and i liked the new version of this ghost story it was winderful.




    12. I loved this book because it's a big adventure in china but the book is a bit spooky when describing the ghost. The author describes the book so well that your able to picture it in your head.


    13. Really fantistic and fascinating book! I wish there was a series of it because it was a great as book. I dont know what to say!


    14. A Ghost in my Suitcase is an excellent fast pace book that is written to perfection. I'm a very fussy reader but this book was one of the best.
