Publisher's Summary

Finn McAllister was a normal middle school nerd - now he’s a ghost with a big mystery to solve

One minute, Finn was biking home from school, and the next, he was run off the road by a maniac in a big van. Now, he's a ghost. He can do lots of fun things, like try every ice cream flavor in the store, sneak up on people, and play as many video games as he wants. Finn even has a new ghost friend, Isabella, to show him the ropes. But he also has a lot of big questions, like: Who wanted him dead? And can he stop the maniac from striking again?

Packed with hilarious moments, epic friendships, and fun art, Best Nerds Forever celebrates the nerd in each of us and the joy of living life to its fullest.

I enjoyed it :) however

I really enjoyed this story, and choked me up a bit. I liked the character ark, and sorry. But the language felt a little, “hey there fellow kids” in a few places. And the ending was, eh. I thought it would be great to end with them cliff-diving into the light, not re awakening. I don’t like it’s all a dream endings, it demystifies the story, and detracts from its meaning. I wish it ended with going into the light. But again, I enjoyed it.

Would you please have more than one narrator?

My kids and I enjoyed the story; although we expected that end . I wish the story would have been narrated by several kids not just one Thuringia to impersonate all the female and male characters .

Awesome but uh really complex at the end

I thought that the ideas would make sense but uh Isabella was kinda shallow me as a girl know how much shallow girls can impact an entire story. All around great! AEA

Patterson for the win!

This story had the whole family on the edge of their seats. Patterson did a good job keeping it kid appropriate, but still with enough mystery and intrigued that it held your attention. Only 4 stars due to the ending. Still, worth the read.

Amazing!!

I listened to this with my 8 year old son. Wow it was amazing. A beautiful story following a boy who was too scared to live, until he couldn't.
