I received this through the First Reads program.This was an enjoyable read. I immediately liked Ben, possibly because I felt sorry for him, but I also thought his voice was realistic. The various townspeople blended together a bit for me, but I liked how the ghost story was introduced and carried out in a plausible way (as these things go). There are interesting details about redwoods, and it made me want to visit the Pacific Northwest. It could have been a bit shorter (less of Ben's angst, I think), but it kept my interest throughout.
