Helping the dead rest in peace isn't getting any easier. When the school bully's mother dies, Kip is shocked when he has to deliver not one but two messages to the family. He's labeled a freak. Can Kip carry on in the face of adversity? Rumors?
What I thought: Another quick read from Paratore (141 pages). Kip gets more interesting in this book. He's the object of two girls' affection. He has to give messages that harm him (reputation-wise). I can't wait to see what life has in store for Kip next.
