"Equal parts psychological realism and supernatural thriller, this story about living in the present and conquering fear has teen appeal in spades...Sinykin's simple, straightforward prose can be read by those as young as nine, but the subject matter-disease, death, arranged marriage and suicide-makes this title more appropriate for older readers. A good choice for reluctant teens." -Kirkus Reviews
"Recommended for ghost-loving young teens. It's a great book for reluctant older readers too, as Sinykin's storytelling style is clear and spare." -50 Plus Lifestyles
"...the book will draw some readers through its subject matter and will thereby connect them with a character seeking to understand her family, her place in a larger scheme of things, and her glimpse beyond the natural world." -School Library Journal
"More than a ghost story, this book serves as a guide for teenagers experiencing illness and death in their families...Sinykin successfully blends essential information about the process of dying with a fictional narrative that could be useful for teens facing similar circumstances in their lives." -VOYA
"...includes a realistic look at death and dying...Through the story, death may become less frightening for YA readers, and questions will arise from the realistic tone and informational passages." -Kliatt

I'd say this is just a normal ghost story-ish book for 9-12 year olds except for the excellent way it handles death (like gradual age or sickness death). Read morePublished on April 29, 2009 by Buffy

This is just the sort of book everyone dreams of writing -- a "quiet" book with a big, beating heart. It's tightly written and meticulously put together: Aunt Mari is a wonder. Read morePublished on October 27, 2007 by Louise Hawes
