Small spaces

Best book ever
That is my type of book

It was close to impossible to put down. Plot twists, a chilling mystery unfolding and suspects. Kept me guessing! I was hooked from the very first words, and the format of the novel was beauifully layed out. After reading Small Spaces, I chill ran up my spine if anybody ever mentioned 'imaginary freinds'. A perfect read to lovers of mystery, horror, a smidge of romance and 2 perspectives.
