Mila has no one in this world after she has aged out of foster care system and this is her story when she accepts a job at a farm owned by a couple who's known for taking in orphans which happens to be the refuge of kids like her.

She gets the job to teach the kids and stay together with them all under a roof. But things happen which are beyond her control but yes, under the caring found family with each of them having to fight for their own ghosts, this ghostly rural fantasy kept me hooked till the last page and it made my heart so warm throughout the story. This one will stay memorable.

Think twice before opening up this book. Because...you will know the moment you open it up. I haven't been creeped out like that in years!

Most part of the book is all about healing and acceptance.

This book would be so apt to choose for Halloween readathons, readalong or just as an October read. It gets spooky at times with all those ghosts dancing and being mean at times and sparking fear, discomfort to the ones they are seemingly low-key haunting.

I like the half-way scary vibes, the half-way crime vibes, the half-way attachments and detachments. The writing is addictive. This is the book that can be finished up in one sitting.

The adult characters, the adoptive parents, are warm and quite experienced in handling these broken, scarred for life ones.

I particularly felt so protective towards Lee, a 9 year-old, who hides in smaller space and keeps rocking back and forth when his ghosts strike.

I totally understand why Mila's the way she's.
She had suffered enough living under a man, Blake, who kept manipulating her mother and made them live in inhuman surroundings.

I am surprised how this author's writing has made such a huge improvement throughout these years!
