Gonna read this one as I flip through Monsters of Men! Let's see how this one attacks the very important subject matter of self-harm. I'll let you know my thoughts as soon as I finish! 📚

The Time of the Ghost | Diana Wynne Jones

"There's been an accident!" thinks the ghost - is she a ghost? Is she really dead? Is something after the Melford sisters - and which sister is she? This is a delight, spooky and realistic at the same time, with ancient forces, blood magic, all the drama of sibling relationships and parents you will love to hate (seriously they are the WORST). Plus the backdrop of British countryside and an all-boys boarding school. #sbksept #shortbooks #readathon

I wish I knew who recommended this to me, or how I found it! Little (indie!) books like these are a treasured favorite of mine. This is set in 1920s St Paul (that's Minnesota, don't'cha know), and is such a delightful little diary of Coco's life. The last 20 or so pages are full of photographs from her life and the time, and a brief family biography.

I think I need to check the publisher website and see what's new! (U of MN Press)

Jabberwocky Cool!! Gorgeous cover 5y
Tamra How adorable! I'm in MN and I need to get better about checking UMN press! (edited) 5y

Weighing it at just over 200 pages, my current read is a classic short book! I hate this cover, but it was the least expensive edition at the bookstore where I used to work.
