A winning, instant-classic-of-the-genre kind of novel, even despite some of its quirky flaws. A young boy arrives at a school for orphans and immediately things start going poorly. It isn't long before they get even worse, with dead bodies and ghosts and a general sense of mental instability among adults and children alike. While Winnette occasionally loses his grip on the storytelling, he keeps the pulse driving and keeps the eeriness growing. I was constantly surprised by the novel's turns and never got a true grip on it, to my great delight. And the conclusion literally took my breath away.

And MAN that cover is something else.
