Loved this story!
We listened to this audiobook on a long road trip. The reading of the story was spectacular and the writing excellent. My husband, 11 year old son, and I all loved it. It's a story of ghosts and spooky things but at its core it's a story of a boy growing up, and it was relatable to all of us. I was sad when it was over.
I did not want this book to end! You know how you occasionally find a book so good that you just can't stop thinking about it and end up going through it way too fast? Well this is exactly how it was for me with this book. I loved the characters, the voices for the audiobook was superb, and the entire concept in general. It's a must read!
