Critical Reviews

"Tingle, a Choctaw storyteller, relates his tale in the engaging repetitions and rhythms of an oft-told story. ... The novel comes alive in Isaac's voice and in the rich alliance of the living and the dead." -- Dean Schneider "The Horn Book Magazine"

"The beginning of a trilogy, this tale is valuable for both its recounting of a historical tragedy and its immersive Choctaw perspective." -- Vicky Smith "Kirkus Reviews"

"As the 2014 AIYLA Middle School winning book, it will come as no surprise that {this book} receives a rousing endorsement ... deserves a place in any collection that serves audiences interest in either American Indians or great stories." -- George Gottschalk "American Indian Library Association"

"Throughout, this story shines with the warmth that Tingle's storytelling voice brings to his writing. I highly recommend How I Became A Ghost. I have it on good authority that we'll hear more from Isaac. I look forward to it." -- Debbie Reese "American Indians in Children's Literature"
