Far Far Away

by Tom McNeal

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

My “Adults Who Read Kids’ Books” book club loved this one. Jeremy can already talk to the ghost of Jacob Grimm (yup, that Jacob Grimm). Then things get even weirder in his already-weird small town – kids are disappearing, a girl seems to be inexplicably in love with him, and then Jeremy’s life turns into a real Grimm fairy tale that it seems even the ghost of Jacob Grimm can’t help him out of. The story starts out benignly enough but then strange things happen that all come together in the end. I will say that it has a happy ending, and though you have to go to some pretty dark places with Jeremy to get there, it’s totally worth it.
