Who the hell thought ghost spiders were necessary anyway.
Why is it that there’s always a point past which belief won’t go? You don’t get that with science. Say ‘we can make light where there is none by flipping a switch, and also we’ve flown out to the moon to say hello to the rocks, and these are equal applications of the scientific method,’ everyone smiles and nods their dead and says good for you, Science Person, congratulations. But when a bunch of ghosts and witches say Muses exist, everyone gets their knickers in a twist.
Hitchhiker ghost Rose Marshall, “the Phantom Prom Date,” has a decent-enough afterlife. She may be cold and hungry all the time, but she’s got a job to do, a community, and a boyfriend, even if he is part of a car and can only talk by flipping his radio dial to find songs with the right words. But she’s also got her murderer -- Bobby Cross -- still on her tail, still determined to make her dead-dead. And the lengths he’ll go to don’t only affect Rose.I’ll confess that when I first saw this sequel to Sparrow Hill Road, I didn’t think there was any call for it. Hadn’t there been a happy-enough resolution to the first book? How much more could there be to tell about Rose? Then I saw Wanda’s review, and she convinced me that this book would be worth reading.
