Far Far Away

26 May

Loved this book by acclaimed author Tom McNeal – where Jeremy Johnson Johnson is the only one who can hear ghost Jacob Grimm – one of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales brothers. Lyrical, tense, funny, with beautifully drawn characters. The erudite ghostly presence of Jacob, juxtaposes with the modern teens, feisty & wise Ginger and determined Jeremy.  Even the ancillary characters come to life – this should be Lionsgate/Summit’s next teen blockbuster. Vivid, personal, tense and ultimately triumphant, with seductive language that reminds us why Grimm’s tales have lasted this long. Lovely. Highly recommend.
