    A refreshing coming of age story with a distinctly spooky twist.Also, it would make for a FANRASTIC movie I can see the movie trailer now The camera shows the front of a car where an elderly man in a fedora like hat Uncle Morris and a teenage girl of about 12 or 13 Maggie are seated The elderly man has a pleasant air about him The girl s face is tw

    This is one of those books if asked to choose a handful to take to a desert island or to pass on to grand children or to rescue from a fire if there were no chance of getting another copy, this would be one I would choose without hesitation Maggie is an orphan and is sent to live with some Aunts who live in an old school house, the founders of the schoo

    Let s face it This book is terrifying I couldn t stop rereading it as a kid, but seriously What the absolute hell There are living porcelain dolls living in the attic Does everyone in the family who dies become a doll Or just the ones who die violently Also, the story is a flashback, leaving you with the impression that the narrator has either been adopted or is in a foster home now
