Tighter is a good supernatural novel which centres on the main female character Jamie. Jamie is a good female character as she goes through some of the same problems that other teenage girls have to face. Problems such as crushes, health problems and job problems. The best male character in this novel in my opinion is Sebastian because he really identifies with the problems which Jamie is going through and he really likes her so he would do anything to help her.

For people who haven't read this novel the main premise of the novel (from the blurb on the back) is that Jamie becomes an au-pair in Little Bly for a young girl called Isa. However, when Jamie gets to Little Bly she finds out that the previous au-pair for Isa, called Jessie, died the previous summer in a plane crash. Jamie then finds out that she looks exactly like the dead girl Jessie and everyone is shocked by their identical appearances.

This whole novel is filled with ghosts, intrigue and mystery. However, to find out what happens throughout this novel means you must read it for yourself or else you will never know. I only gave this book 4/5 stars as I felt it was missing a bit of action from the story. If the story contained more action with the ghosts then it would have got the full 5 stars. However, this was a brilliant novel and I suggest that everyone read it if you like mystery ghost novels. If you are a fan of Adele Griffin's novels then you definitely need to give this a read and soon.
