"Carroll writes simply and meaningfully"

Carroll writes simply and meaningfully; there’s not a weed in her word garden. It’s impossible not to get caught up in a story that has an enticing chill factor but turns out to be more about solidarity and togetherness than about ghosts and ghouls. Perfect for now but also, if I may predict, built to stand the test of time.
