This was a YA title that my friend Sharyn gave to me. It’s about a group of kids who come upon a haunted house, make friends with a ghost and learn about the house’s history. At the same time, the narrator is coming to grips with an abusive father and her own issues dealing with that. It’s a good if somewhat breathy purple-proseish story. I liked it, but didn’t totally love it though I enjoyed the characters and their interactions. Apparently it’s a prequel to another novel by Hoffman which is more geared towards an adult readership and I’ll probably look that book up when I have the chance.
