Mastering cliffhangers worthy of Twin Peaks, Ghost Beach will leave you second-guessing everything you thought you knew about Bontown. I'm in love with the way the format and layout is played with; the pages after Jared is given the "anti-anxiety cocktail", as well as the multi-story/timeline spreads make this story jump off the pages at you.
10/10 - my favourite book of 2017!

Jared Paige is afraid of being attacked in his own home. Reading Ghost Beach is like the feeling you get when you wake up in the night and think someone has broken into your house. The layers of mystery and confusion make you move from page to page expecting imminent terror. Bontown is the darkside of the city you pretend is not there. The Storm Clouds spiral spins faster as it all leads down to the bottom.
David Graham - Poet
The section where Mitchell interlaces several stories over a few pages is a work of art. It reminded me of Aldous Huxley's writing, and there aren't many greater compliments than that. It's like a comic for kids, but for adults!
You'll love it!
