The Companion grabbed me from the beginning! What a unusual situation to be put in,taking care of a child who has issues,nighmares! If I lived in that house,I would have them too! It seems to draw you in,not the house,the story where you get just so much to read and poof,it's gone! This story has you wondering about this family,the house others,what do they have to hide? Really would so like to finish this mystery interacting book!
