“It’s about ghosts and terrifying danger and going mad all at once. I didn’t know what was real and what was imagined until the very last page. I loved it!” MELVIN BURGESS

Has a great opening: “My dad died twice. Once when he was thirty nine and again four years later when he was twelve.”
Extremely clever and totally engaging. The Irish Times
