One of the reasons why I picked up this book was because of the title and the cover. I'm not sorry I picked it up. I absolutely love this book. It's beautiful, touching and more importantly; it made me cry! My Brother's Ghost took me about half an hour to read, it's a pretty easy read though I'm not sure if it's easy enough for the intended target audience. If you would like to read this, I suggest you have your tissue box on the ready. An excellent book and highly recommended.
