This story is, in a word: As the author mentions. Persevering goodness triumphs over perils both personal and cosmic as Liesl and her friends try to lay her father’s ghost to rest and restore light and harmony to the world.

Be the first to review this title. I honestly wish that more authors would write like Oliver does; even if they aren’t strictly children’s story writers like Oliver. No matter how much you try, you cannot escape, cannot “forget”, yourself; your true self.
