I loved this book! It was fast-paced, suspenseful and definitely creepy. I was holding my breath along with Florence at times!

Florence had such a unique style of narration. At first I did think that it was a little annoying/confusing, but after awhile I got into it; it didn't bother me at all, and I could easily understand what she was talking about.

I loved the way that Florence handled things on her own, there were no adults around that she could totally rely on (or convince to believe her story!) so she had to take control of the situation, and try to save Giles from their evil governess.

I did think that the ending was a bit over-the-top, especially since Florence is only meant to be twelve, but I did like it. I also loved how there were some things that were left unanswered, it definitely added to the mysteriousness of the novel.

This is one of the most unique and likable books I have read this year!
