it 4 stars. However, as a 66 year old Harry Potter fan, I also enjoyed it! I do believe in ghosts so I could
empathize with the main character, Mattie.
She is in foster care and does her best to ignore the ghosts who try to talk to her. That is till another
foster girl, Sally, is murdered. Mattie's quest to find Sally's body and perhaps save the life of another
girl forces her to communicate with the ghosts - sometimes leading to physical and mental violence for
Though I found the dialogue a bit limited - every guy she met was "cute" and she "sooo was not going to
talk to this cop ..." etc. I suspect that is how teenagers do converse! And she did repeat her feelings
about the cop, Dan and not wanting to trust anyone a tad too often. However, once going, the story rattled
along, especially towards the end. There was no bad language or sex scenes and only a few typos.
I read this book in one evening and thought I knew the killer early on - I was wrong, which made a nice
change! I would recommend this book to anyone interested in ghosts, whatever your age.
The ghost of Emma is around eight years old, she has a hole in her head.
Mattie leaves her foster sister Sally at home while she heads off to the party, but later the ghost of Sally appears at the party. Mattie knows she's dead. Rushing home she begs Mrs Olsen to ring the police, but she's reluctant because Sally told her she was going to a party too. She insists on waiting a few hours. Desperate to help find Sally's killer, Mattie bravely calls out to the ghosts. Instead of Emma a small boy appears, he too has a shot wound. Then a gruesome ghost physically attacks Mattie and she ends up in hospital.
With no other option but to tell someone about the ghosts, Mattie confides in officer Dan Richards. Dan is very sceptical, but agrees to help. Another ghost appears, Mary, she's beaten, but Mattie believes she is still alive, promising to find and help Mary before it's too late. Mattie is convinced there is a serial killer attacking kids and time is running out.
I liked Mattie, she is sharp witted, independent and strong willed. She's been in foster care long enough that she knows the system and how to survive. Horror isn't for everyone, and I need to sleep at night, but because this is #YA I found the horror compelling to read rather than frightening. Really enjoyed the twists and turns in this and have downloaded the second book in the series.
Brilliantly told tale. Do yourself a favour and buy this then make a pot of coffee, close and lock the doors and don't stop till you've finished. By then you'll realise locking the doors was pointless!

Every chapter had me wanting to read the next and then the next. It's creepy and has its own romance but isn't taken over by that but by the story being told. I love it.Published 1 month ago by sharky the snow shark
