BREATHE: A Ghost Story, by Cliff McNish

Breathe: A Ghost Story, by Cliff McNish (Carolrhoda, 2006)(8-12): Twelve year old Jack and his mother Sarah have moved into an old farmhouse in the country. There, Jack discovers that he, and he alone, can see the ghosts that have been haunting the place for more than a century. Some are children and one - called the Ghost Mother - is more than she seems. Suddenly, Jack is in a race to unearth the truth about them all before he and Sarah are lost.

Breathe is an altogether suspenseful and truly scary novel that intriguingly probes the boundaries between love and self-indulgence. I picked it up intending to read a few pages before bed and ended up having to read the whole thing...

this book was a pleasure to read. I understand what you mean by "..was going to read a few pages, but ended up reading the whole thing." It's hard to put down. It's bone-chillingly good. :)
