This is a collection of four short (really short) stories. In "The Visitors Book" our narrator has a philosophical argument with her boyfriend about the pretentiousness of his visitors book. But why is it so important to him? In "The Last Boy to Leave" Jen and Greg host a birthday party for their son in their family home. But after all the guests have left, one boy remains. Where are his parents? In "Justified True Belief" Suzie suffers from bad neck pain and thinks she's seen a ghost. Are the two related? In "All the Dead Mothers of My Daughter's Friends" Mel has an unusual encounter with Lisa outside their daughters' school. Do you know the difference between a daytime ghost and a nighttime ghost? You'll find out here. All of the stories have a common thread, though I can't say what it is for fear of giving too much away. They are all eerie, suspenseful, and give you a feeling of dread as you read them. They will also keep you guessing until the very end. My only complaint: I just wish this collection was a little longer. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post (16 December):

This was a great collection of short stories. Each one had a bit of a supernatural twist. I won’t review each individual story, because that would involve spoiling them as they are short stories. But with the long winter months coming up, this is a great book to read by the warm fire. Each one details a specific character’s story and their being thrust into the world of ghosts. The stories are well developed and kept my attention. If I had one thing negative to say it might be that at times, I wasn’t sure if it was from the viewpoint of a dead person, or a living person looking into the world of the dead. Overall though, a great set of stories and a very enjoyable book. If you like ghost stories, then be sure to pick this up.
