Praise

"A ghost story full of nuance and depth." —Kirkus Reviews

“This thoroughly quirky tale highlights the importance of mutual respect, community, and family heritage…. A ghost story about family heritage and obligations that will appeal to fans of family-driven, slice-of-life tales.” —School Library Journal

Ingenious, rascally, and still deeply empathic—will elicit knowing smiles.” Publishers Weekly
