This was a cute, quick read. It kept my interest throughout and was a unique story I hadn't read a lot before.

I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway. Fun, easy, quick read. I hope there is a follow-up book. The characters were just starting to get developed and would have more of their own stories.

This was a quick fun read about a girl, her cat, and her family who after going broke turned their home into a funeral parlor during the Yellow Fever epidemic.
This was a Goodreads Giveaway with a few fun extras! Thanks!

Recommends it for: Middle School readers
I received this as a giveaway. It is a fun read at a middle school level. Set in the early 1900's it an historical ghost story involving a family that turns it's home into a mortuary during a smallpox epidemic. It has a lot of sub themes including a distant, uninvolved father, a bully, a nerd, and a dishonest mother. Add ghosts, including a cat, and you have lots of Gothic hijinks.
