Allmänna fakta



A girl who can communicate with the dead makes her living by charging them and their living relations for the privilege of her gift. But when a ghost who can’t pay begs her to find her missing son, she breaks all her rules against charity cases and sets out to investigate the series of mysterious disappearances in the neighborhood. She also gets her friend to sneak her into the members-only secret library where he works (and for which his father is president), and soon realizes both that the two things are related and that she very well may be in over her head.

I had a little trouble staying on top of the plot with this one, but it was still an okay read, if a little scattered.

A light read with some heavy topics. This short story depicts daily life in Zimbabwe as well as some serious social issues, such as injustice, corruption, and homophobia - though mostly from the surface. The writing might have benefited from more editing, but it was a pleasant and quick read.

This wasn't for me and I should have DNF'd.

Contrary to others, I thought the ending was well done… fast paced, interesting, left a bit of a cliffhanger while still giving a sense of being wrapped up. But for much of the book, I was… I don’t know, a little frustrated, a little disinterested. It drags in places and seemed unfocused at times. Some telling that felt unnecessary. So, overall, ⭐️⭐️⭐️. I would read the 2nd, but I don’t need to rush right out to get it.
