Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A satisfying page-turner and will keep middle-grade mystery fans engaged until the very end.” Children’s Literature
“Sean Crisden delivers an eerily effective performance, giving a Poe-ish atmosphere to this dark children’s story. With a low, throaty voice he captures the entity that seeks revenge for past wrongs by possessing various residents of Magnolia. Crisden’s vocal versatility conveys the personalities of the bold yet simple-minded Sonny and spunky tomboy Sammy as they help their friend, Eugene, fight off the ghostly specter’s attempts to drive him to murder.” AudioFile
“A complex, spooky page-turner for middle-grade readers.” Booklist
“The first-person narrative, fast-paced prose and careful plotting make this a satisfying page-turner.” Kirkus Reviews
