For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 ghosts out of 5! This book was such a great read as it reminded me of my favorite novels to read when I was younger such as Goosebumps and The Babysitters Club. However, this chapter book is modern and much more captivating to read. Chilling with a dash of humor makes this a fantastic start to a series.

1-2-3-4, I Declare A Thumb War brings five friends together and each friend brings their own strength to the group which I loved! Can’t wait to see what this group will be doing next.

1-2-3-4, I declare this book a must read!
