I needed to go to bed. I couldn’t go to bed. I had to read. OMG! Amazing! I love that the girl stays mysterious for most of the book. We know she is a ghost. We know she can see other ghosts and only hurts people who are bad. Over half way through the story, after being truly invested, I found out who the girl is and why she is stuck in our world and not moving on.
This is a definite read over book. My favorite scene happens toward the beginning of the book when the Smiling Man shows up and has a group of 12 girls and 5 boys on his back. The description is so real. I can see him talking to Sandra with the seventeen children on his back. I will recommend The Girl from the Well to friends and colleagues!
