A sneaky, funny, tenacious high school journalist uncovers a gothic mystery in her quiet little village. Also, she has awesome friendships, and her imaginary friend turns out to be not as imaginary as she thought. The book overturns expectations and YA tropes in really enjoyable ways, ways that create a unqiue, rich, and emotionally-grounded story.

I absolutely loved this book except for the ending. It's not a cliffhanger; I just found it unsatisfying and too "and thus ends Act I!", even for a first book in a series. (I admittedly had such high hopes for the ending, given the first book of SRB's first trilogy, The Demon's Lexicon, has one of the most sublime endings I've ever read.)
