2014 book 223

Charis Cotter's The Swallow: A Ghost Story
So this is the story of two girls with opposite problems--Rose, who sees ghosts, and feels invisible, and Polly, who wants to see ghosts, and wishes for time alone away from her crazy family. Both head to their attics for some solitary reading time--only it turns out they share a wall, and end up becoming friends. And soon they're dealing with a malicious spirit and wondering whether Rose is a ghost herself. Of course, some of the way this goes is not too hard to figure out, but that doesn't mean I wasn't straight up sobbing for like the last quarter of it. Really charming and creepy--charmingly creepy? A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book is available now.
