Pram Bellamy is special - she can talk to ghosts. She doesn't have too many friends among the living, but that's all right. She has her books, she has her aunts, and she has her best friend, the ghostly Felix. Then Pram meets Clarence, a boy from school who has also lost a parent and is looking for answers. Together they arrive at the door of the mysterious Lady Savant, who promises to help. But this spiritualist knows the true nature of Pram's power, and what she has planned is more terrifying than any ghost.

A very interesting way to describe the world unknown, a true care to protect a girl with unusual gift and a warm way to describe spirits' characters frighten us most, combine all together wanting you to finish this book in no time.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a creative and grim tale, with a Tim Burton under tone. I am a big fan of Felix and the world that was created in this book. Good listen/read for young adults who like a scary story. Great performance as well.
I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.
This book is a little hazy, which fits into the subject matter of ghosts. Time passes quickly and slowly for the main character. You are never quite sure of the time period in which the book is set. However, there are some super implausible/convenient connections in the plot which are unsatisfactorily explained through dream walking. Other things are left unexplained and the main characters are okay with it because "ghosts are different and hard to understand." In the end, I was left unsatisfied by this story. The plot either needed to be more specific or less so.
I have lots of kids so I can't sit around anymore and read like I wish I could. So I fold clothes, wash dishes and listen to books.
When she talked to her aunts and she Pram realized she was wanted the whole time.
The ONLY thing that bothered me about this book was the constant "Pram Said." The author didn't hardly use any other way of describing the "Saids"
There was no "She exclaimed" or "She yelled" it was said said said said and after a few chapters it was starting to annoy the snot out of me!
BUT I did love the book overall. I could listen tot he narrator read the phonebook!
I didn't know what to expect from this story. It is the kind of story that sounds like it has been told for generations and yet it is original. With just the right dash of creepiness and yet family friendly. Love the characters Felix is an instant love. No love triangle. Not a YA romance/porn novel. Just a really engaging story. I loved it. Bravo!!
Dog lover & book addict.
I liked the main character, Pram. She was different. The narrator was great with the voices of the characters too.
Felix. She did great with his voice and his enthusiasm showed through.
Yes, I finished it on 4 commutes.
