“After suffering a tragic loss, eleven-year-old Ollie only finds solace in books. So when she happens upon a crazed woman at the river threatening to throw a book into the water, Ollie doesn’t think–she just acts, stealing the book and running away. As she begins to read the slender volume, Ollie discovers a chilling story about a girl named Beth, the two brothers who both loved her, and a peculiar deal made with “the smiling man,” a sinister specter who grants your most tightly held wish, but only for the ultimate price.”
Pretty much read this one in one sitting. Forgot that I was supposed to be reading it with the family. I found the story engrossing and definitely look forward to reading the second book “Dead Voices” with my little tribe.

Small Spaces creeped me the heck out! It was such a good good novel.
Did you read Dead Voices yet? If so was it as good as Small Spaces?
Not yet! Plan on getting to it before the end of this month.
