There are a lot of good reviews up on this book so I won't add my own, but I don't understand people who say they didn't like the characters in this book. How can you not relate to Eleanor's desire for friendship and belonging after a life of isolation? I loved Eleanor and I loved how the haunting found a way into Eleanor's insecurity and offered her the sense of belonging the other characters couldn't provide.
