I can't rate this as I didn't read past the first 20 pages. It just didn't grip me at all the way Hoffman's other novels have and it seemed like the story wasn't starting, it was all just words unrelated to each other.

Disappointing, I admit, but of all her novels this is the only one I've felt this way about so far.

This is going to JuneBug31 who I picked it up for anyway...hope she enjoys it!!

Certainly a page turner!! An eerily haunting story about a small town and the private school that is at it's center. So many lives intertwined. A rather backward boy who flirts with a beautiful girl, an oddly strange photographer who is engaged to a terribly odd and boring teacher and the cop who must solve the mystery of the body that was found in the river.

This was an intriguing book with a little of everything in it. Ghostly, friendships, eccentricity, love, mystery, wonderment!

Thanks for passing it on cestmoi, sorry you didn't enjoy it.
