I’m glad to finally be making ground with this one. I received an advanced copy through Edelweiss and it had my attention from the get-go, but school work took over for a bit. The beauty of being on holiday. I’m bummed I missed the Halloween atmosphere to read it in, but still excited to see where this is going.
Why I’m reading this:
- The title – There’s something about stories dealing with Death (as a character) that intrigue me.
- The story arc – a boy who grew up in a funeral home in a small town who gets caught up in a mystery? Sold.
- The mystery – since the target audience is middle school, I’m curious in the mystery involved.
Can’t wait to see what Douglas is up against!
