Far Far Away / Tom McNeal / 369 pages
Great creepy book for teens. This original fairy tale takes place in the town of Never Better where there lives a boy named Jeremy Johnson Johnson who can hear the voice of the ghost of Jacob Grimm who is trapped in the inbetween world. Jeremy supports his father who never leaves the house or his bed after his wife runs away with another man. There is something quite strange going on in the town of Never Better and Jeremy, the ghost of Jacob and a feisty girl named Ginger discover the identity of the vicious "Finder of Occasions." The ghost is the narrator if the tale and it is sometimes confusing as to who is speaking but all in all, this is a book that will have teens turning the pages to discover the fates of Jeremy and Ginger.
