The cover on this doesn’t give too much away- other than the defiant look from a character that I think represents Mary well.
Mary can hear ghosts, and her grandmother is a fortune teller, so Mary comes from a family with history. Problem is, no one but her grandma and her best friend Rachel, believe her. Mary is misunderstood, made fun of and made to look like a freak by most of her school peers. Even the teachers scorn her and don’t take her seriously.
I felt a really good connection with Mary – we get to know her fairly well. The book is fairly small I thought, but it’s completely absorbing and packed with action and emotional happenings all the way through. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and I am glad Mary has a good friend in Rachel otherwise her life would be unbearable.
Mary goes out of her way to help one of her peers when he takes an interest to her – will she make another friend or alienate another person who can’t understand what she’s about?
