This is an interesting fantasy book that would be good for middle school readers who enjoy mystery and ghost stories. I like the book because it has a surprising, supernatural twist. Almost each chapter leaves you with some sort of suspense, making you want to turn the page. I like the author’s use of stylish language and humor. This helped to lighten up some of the more serious topics in the book such as death and the broken father-son relationship. What I didn’t like about the book is the main character’s ghostly friend dies from committing suicide. Depending on the mentality and age of the reader, this topic may not be an appropriate for some young readers.
