    Okay I’m sorry but I just wasn’t in love with this one To begin with it’s got that stick up the butt pseudo Victorian narrator voice that great children’s authors of the 1980s always seem to adopt when they’re writing about the 1800s think Cynthia Voigt in The Callender Papers I hate that voice Also the whole thing just seemedmuddled to me Age wise I mean not plot wise See the story’s about Judith this orphan who comes to live with her uncle after her mom dies in an INSANE ASYLUM wooooo and the only stipulation that her uncle has is that she CAN’T BRING THE COLOR GREEN INTO THE HOUSE But of course she does because GIRLS IN THESE BOOKS NEVER LISTEN and the house immediately becomes haunted Because it turns out that a girl named Jade Green seriously whut? lived there before her and Jade Green totes offed herself By cutting off her hand and letting herself bleed out all over the attic stairsYeah TOTALLY NOT A MURDER Y’ALL Seriously Naylor who are you kidding? NO ONE KILLS THEMSELVES WITH A MEAT CLEAVERAnyway on the one hand har this is obviously meant for younger children because the murderer is telegraphed from essentially the first time he runs his hands over Judith’s maidenly bosom buttons On the other hand again har Judith is always talking about how the neighborhood boy is giving her the tinglies in her drawers and how she would very much like to roll around with him naked and I’m thinking that’s just not going to appeal to an audience of eight year olds Naylor should have either cut out all the underpants tinglies or pitched this older because what we’re left with is a book that is a little too adult in content for readers who might appreciate its plot and waaaaaaaaaaaay too simplistic in its plot for readers who can related to their underpants tinglingRecommended for Eh eight year olds The sex stuff will be over their heads anyway I hope

    Jade Green was an amazing frightening fantastic ghost story about Judith Sparrow a fifteen year old girl who has just become an orphan and is sent to live with her uncle in South Carolina Her uncle has only one rule you may not bring anything green into the house Judith's mother had given her a picture of her in a green silk frame as a gift and Judith cannot bear to part with it so she secretly brings it in the house What Judith doesn't know is that three years prior a girl named Jade Green had taken her own life in that very house and the color green is the one thing that awakens the ghost of herI gave this novel at ten out of ten because I loved it a lot I was hesitant at first because I don't go to sleep very well after reading scary novels but I enjoyed this one a lot and I think it was worth losing sleep over I would recommend this to anybody Literally I would go walking down a busy street telling everybody I saw to read this book No joke A man sir in my opinion is moderate in his drink selective in his women and does not risk his money over a gaming table Jade Green page 134

    Orphaned Judith Sparrow had been given everything by her uncle when she arrived penniless and even still she has disobeyed him In the exciting horror novel Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor Judith never thought she would be so lucky Her uncle had taken her to live in his house in Whispers South Carolina All seemed well but that is about to changeThere is only one big rule her uncle has that she must keep Nothing green is allowed in the house Judith thinks nothing of it; every family has something odd about them She promises her uncle she will leave anything green behind but she doesn’t keep her word for long She has only one possession of her dead mother a picture fitted in a lovely green silk frame She cannot bear to leave it so she barriers it at the bottom of her suitcase and takes it along When she arrives at her uncle’s house she has a roof over her head people who care about her and friends The only thing that bugs her is her cousin Charles who comes only to the house for meals and leaves afterwards Time goes on and forgetting about the picture frame she is startled when she starts hearing things in her closet and seeing s ghostly hand crawling across the floor The gossip in the town is that a young girl died at that house three years ago taking her own life by cutting off her hand with a knife Her name was Jade a sweet and happy child who loved the color green Has Judith brought the ghost of Jade Green back to the house? Will her uncle find out she has disobeyed him? Read the book to find out The characters in this book are very interesting I liked how for example Jade Green was named after her favorite color The characters in this book are easy to imagine with the detail the author used to describe them This book is for you if you like horror novels about ghosts I recommend it for both boys and girls in 6th to 8th grade I hope you will all try to read Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

    Recently orphaned Judith is sent to live with her kind uncle Geoffrey Uncle Geoffrey's only condition is that nothing green is allowed in his home Judith can't bear to part with a green picture frame holding a photo of her parents so she sneaks it into the house buried deep in her trunk Soon however she starts hearing strange noises coming from the closetThis was a compelling ghost story hard to put down Judith's lecherous cousin Charles was much disturbing than the ghostly Jade Green; he is one of the most creepy characters I've ever read Jade Green reminded me of The Secret Garden Jane Eyre and What Lies Beneath Don't read it alone

    A mix or romance rumors horror and a murderous stalker this book has a bit of everything What I liked about this book though was that it was predictable but not in a way that the author tried to hide it You knew who killed Jade from the beginning but it was still thrilling and suspenseful A very difficult thing to accomplish

    Judith Sparrow is now an orphan Both her parents are passed and she is going to live with her Uncle There is only one condition to her living there; she cannot bring anything green into the house But Judith has brought a green picture frame with her that was given to her by her Mother Judith knows she shouldn't have brought it but she couldn't leave the only thing behind that was from her Mother Soon enough Judith is at home living with her Uncle and the cook Mrs Hastenings She is treated well and loves it there But she begins to hear noises Could it do with the fact she brought green into the house? She'll soon find outIt's not a real long book but for me it was a page turner I thought it was a pretty original ghost story I won't reveal why because I don't want to spoil the storyI will say though that I wasn't too far into the book and figured out what happened When nearing the end of the book what I figured happened actually did Even though I figured it out I don't feel that the story was ruined I just wanted the truth to come out in the open and it didI thought it was a good book An original ghost story that I wished as a bit longer

    The ending was such a twist Judith's cousin Charles was acting weird all along He set the house on fire but they got out When they were evacuating for the hurricane and Judith stayed behind to help board the house she went upstairs to pack her bag and Charles came up and tried to rape her The ghostly hand that had been running around kill Charles It turns out that he tried to do the same thing with Jade Green but she didn't make it Charles killed her

    Read this book for my reading challenge a book with your favorite color in the titleAs I read this I realized that I've read it before a long time ago because snippets of it were familiar and I knew what was going to happen just before it did though not the overall plot Oh the pre Goodreads daysThis is a short well written Victorian ghost story Younger readers teens might find this adeuately spooky but as usual as soon as we're shown the spooky thing it's not scary to me any Still I'd recommend this to fans of the genre
