I received this from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. It's a novella that I read in one day. I think it could be made into a full novel and fill in a lot of gaps about Sylvie that have been left. As a young adult book I think the relationship between the characters is representative of high schoolers or even middle schoolers today. I would love to see what this book could do with more 3 dimensional characters. ( )

George, an unpopular, chubby girl, struggles with her gender, social identity, and sexuality. When she meets Sylvie, she is instantly attracted to her odd and peculiar personality. After standing up for Sylvie, and beating back the bullies, they are drawn together.

This was a novella, and I felt that it did not have enough details to make the story interesting. Sylvie felt like a half formed character. She had possibility, but it was never really fully developed. The story hinted at things, but that was all. It felt like nothing really happened. Overall, a bust. ( )

Disclaimer: I received this book for free in return for an honest review.

Sylvie is the new girl in town and she is unlike anyone George has ever met. One day while working in the school library George sees Sylvie get in trouble with Tommy Payne and his gang. She runs out and defends Sylvie against the boys cementing their new found friendship. They grow closer, though not as close as George would like, in the attic of the antique shop Sylvie's father owns. Sylvie has an unique gift, when she touches an object she can sense its history from its "ghosts". Meanwhile George doesn't feel at home in her body and is hiding her own secret. As time goes on the two friends grow up while apart while growing closer to a tragedy.

This story was a quick read at only 66 pages. I felt like it could have been longer because I was left with several unanswered questions. Overall it was an interesting story and I enjoyed it. ( )

Odd, disturbing, well written, novella regarding self identity. Features some strong triggers for those of likely to be effected by those themes. Sort of a YA finding yourself story. ( )

How could you sum up a life – a whole life – with just a few words? How could you even try?

There’s a new girl in town, Sylvie, and she is not like everyone else. George (Georgina) watches her around the school, fascinated… After an unfortunate incident they become friends. But George wants more than the friendship Sylvie can offer.
In the attic of Sylvie’s father’s antique shop, between the ghosts and hidden gems of other people’s previous lives, their friendship grows. But will that be enough…

This was not the story I thought it would be, it was something much better. It is difficult to put my thoughts and feelings here to paper (or better said, screen). I have read it a month ago and still have trouble explaining other than to say it is a beautiful story. It is very well written and in its beauty there’s also a little sadness. However, it is a sadness that will leave you with a warm, soft feeling.

*Thanks to Meerkat Press for the digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest feedback. ( )
