Glennon Bell | 4 comments hi there,
I've been trying to remember what this book is called.

What I can remember about it is:

they mention suicide booths in a library

the main protagonist is female

she lives with her aunts

they can commune with the dead

girls she knows go missing and mysteriously reappear with different personalities and none of their previous memories

i believe the girls mother died

It's a mystery

i believe it was set during WW1 or WW2 in Europe (England, if I remember correctly)

I hope you guys can help, thanks :D

Moving this to Unsolved since you're looking for one book.

When did you read this? Do you remember anything about the cover? Is this a "real" world or an alternate world book? (I'm asking because of what you said about the suicide booths and the totally changed personalities.)

Glennon Bell | 4 comments Real world, historical set. I can't really remember the book cover but I believe there was a girl on it. Any names would be helpful though!

The only suicide booths I've run into are in the story "Repairer of Reputations" in The King in Yellow.

Glennon Bell | 4 comments It was a full length novel and at oldest I would imagine it would be 2006

The Explosionist by Jenny Davidson?

Suicide booths are mentioned in this review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
