Partial Spoiler Alert! This fun-sized novel is not quite as fully supernatural as the cover and title might lead one to anticipate or hope. Yet... that's not entirely true either. There are ghosts and spirits and hauntings generously sprinkled throughout, just not fully of a kin to Amityville Horror or Stranger Things. Nevertheless, Davidson's work is ultimately a full-on charmer, with a bevy of memorable characters and a light and warm-hearted (despite some dark material) reflection on life and love, neuroscience and memory that pays the reader back in full for any slight traces of disappointment if the ghost count should happen to fall short. Set amidst the narrator's boyhood in an aging Niagara Falls, this is a perfect summer read. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
