A Ghost Story unlike Any I have Ever Heard

If you could sum up The Old Willis Place in three words, what would they be?

Freaky, layered, tear-jerker


What did you like best about this story?

It was such a surprising story. At first I was like,"Ok. I already know what's up with these kids you read about. This is going to be lame if its centered around figuring this out."

But just keep listening. It is and yet isn't at all what you think. I cried hard at the end. It's so shocking in a good way and... I don't want to give anything away... Such a great story. I have read another one of this authors books (Wait til Helen Comes) and that was good too.

I love the uniqueness of this book. I've never read anything like it, ESP with the ending. Just listen and you will know what I mean. I never write reviews but I had to for this one. Well done, Mary Hahn. I'm definitely going to read the rest of her books.

I cried like a baby at the end.
