really liked it

This is the story of the Creepy Clown Lady, later known as Pippa. I really can't tell you much about this novella without spoiling it, so I will just say, this helps brings several pieces together. You find out how Pippa is connected to both Dex and Perry. And how tragic her life was.

I did find myself feeling sorry for her and getting angry at her simultaneously. I suppose it is the whole "Hind sight is 20/20" but knowing some of the things I did, and some of the things she did, she continuously made terrible choices. But like I have said before, I don't always have to agree with characters decisions, as long as they are in character. So, she makes decisions that ultimately lead to her death. That is not a spoiler, you should know going into this she is dead. If you don't know that you should not read this yet.

While this story does answer several questions, it leaves me with new ones; Did Dex's mom see ghosts? What happened to his dad/mom/brother? Did Dex and Perry actually listen to this story on the tapes? Did they hear it together? What were their reactions?

I also want to know what happened to Dex between The Lying Season and On Demon Wings. Hopefully we get to find out in The Dex Files this summer. And maybe Miss Halle will be nice to us and release it early, like she did with Old Blood. :-)

OH! And it includes the first two chapters of Into The Hollows. GOOD LORD I cannot wait for that book. Get over yourselves and get together already!!! Ok, better now.
