When the ghost of the little girl in the blue dress first appeared, Eric Nuzum was an alienated teenager living in his parents' attic. This spectral being wouldn't go away, following the brain-addled boy from high school to college. Unable to convince anyone that the threatening apparitions were real, he was committed to a mental ward. His torments lifted, however, with the arrival in his life of a gentle woman named Laura. Her kindness and his crush smoothed out his distress, but eventually a cruel event struck that changed everything, but added an unexpected twist to Nuzum's preoccupations. Chuck Klosterman praised this trade paperback and NOOK Book original as "a highly unusual, wildly specific story about love and death and confusion. But its power comes from a universal realization: Very often, our memory of a person matters more than whatever actually happened."
