This is a great coming of age story, mixed in with the sort of ghost story that the Victorians used to do so well.

The characters are very well drawn, especially the lead, who it is near impossible not to like and route for. The same goes for his best friend, his mother (for all her faults), and even the teachers at his school, which is odd for this sort of book.

Of course their has to be some villains in the shape of a couple of bullies and two others, who I won't mention as it's a bit of a spoiler.

The ghost aspect is down nicely, without the shock and awe that some writers would have gone in for but what is most refreshing about this book is that although Todd is gay, that's not what the book is about. Meaning that for once we get to read a book about a gay teenager that is (just) about a gay teenager. He's even okay with it.

In fact, it's barely even got anything to do with the main plot/s all of which would have worked almost as well if Todd had liked girls.

All in all a great read.
