102 pages ~ ★★★★☆ ~ Digital Review Copy
This book instantly intrigued me, the cover, the blurb, the fact its just over 100 pages; I just wanted to know more and that feeling continued throughout the book as we’re teased with information.
The book opens on the day of a school play, this is a big event in the lives of six year olds and Matt is rushing to ensure his son is there on time; also at the play are teacher Josh and another parent, Alex. Up to now the three men are aware of each other as they each have children in the same year group but aren’t really friends. A bit of a scuffle between the boys in the middle of the play throws them together briefly however a much larger event is about to occur which will entangle them and their sons for years.
The book is split into three parts, so I’d planned to split this out over three days, well I ended up getting completely sucked in and reading it in two sittings (and that was only because I was really tired). The format is short chapters with the narration constantly switching which keeps the pace up and I was just desperate to get to the last section which is, as you may have guessed, narrated by a ghost.
Overall a good novella that I really enjoyed reading, it crams a lot of plot into 100 pages! Some of the dialogue I felt maybe didn’t match the ages of the sons but maybe that’s just my experience speaking to teenagers.
This book was released last year so you can pick this up in Kindle or Paperback format right now.
