Goodreads Summary:

When her mother is hospitalization for mental illness, Ashlyn Caverhill is crushed to be forced to go live with her grandmother in Prescott Junction, Maine. Nothing ever happens in this small, closed town. Nothing except for the ghost train that rolls through on the rusted lines on dark nights – the one the townsfolk pretend not to hear it as it comes to claim tortured souls.


Ashlyn's Radio. The moment you hear that title you'll think oh its a book about this person Ashlyn's Radio but nope. It started out with that household appliance and became much more.

This was my first true ghost book. It held its creepiness but the book wasn't engrossing enough to have me scared though it still held a mild captivating reel with the author's writing. As the story goes, it began at a regular pace with great chapter cuts and awesome characters who are strong and all the way lovable especially Caden. The story was surrounded around our protagonist Ashlyn Caverhill and how she moves in with her Grandmother while her mother is in a mental institution going crazy because of a haunted radio that her Grandmother keeps. The story behind the radio was really interesting and fascinating to read about and the best thing of all! The love story stayed like it should always in every book "REALISTIC" this clearly has a point when I rate it.

The plot was really concrete and the authors' wrote about it with clear confidence that you can't help but notice. They wrote "Ashlyn's Radio" with clear uniqueness, witty characters, and a concrete plot that's definitely horror movie material!
