    "another mystical thriller about little girls"
    If you could sum up Promise Not to Tell in three words, what would they be?

    Ghosts among us


    Any additional comments?

    McMahon is great, as always. The book keeps you in suspense, and the interweaving of two storylines, the past and the present, is very well done. It is another scary story about terrible things that happen to little girls who live in small towns... I highly recommend Don't breathe a word by the same author, it is a masterpiece!

    I love a good supernatural story with good content, especially from authors that don't feel the need to add smut.

    Story
    "More mystery than ghost story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have made the main characters name feminine. I kept thinking Reggie was a boy. The main character wasn't very likable, either, making her reminiscent of a Gillian Flynn character.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jennifer McMahon before, how does this one compare?

    I liked other books by the author more than this one. This one was ok but I found the others more interesting.


    Which character – as performed by Celeste Ciulla – was your favorite?

    None of them.


    Could you see Promise Not to Tell being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I can't see it as a movie, so I have no answer.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Good"

    Interesting psychological mystery/thriller with a paranormal twist. Good read. Celeste Ciulla's narration was ok.

    Story
    "A decent book"
    What did you love best about Promise Not to Tell?

    The story was pretty good, but you have to pay pretty good attention to keep up with when you are.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It would be better if it didn't drag quite so much.


    What three words best describe Celeste Ciulla???s performance?

    Not much variation


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't know

    "This has to be a book for young readers"

    Surely this book was intended for the middle school crowd. Nancy Drew had deeper thoughts

    "PROMISE NOT TO TELL (Unabridged)"

    Thought the story and narration was good. Held my interest while I was walking and that was all I was hoping for. New to the book club and think this was a good first choice.
