I love a good story, but usually the mention of ghosts being part of the plot would not a recommendation that makes me want to read a book. The preview pages of WATCH OVER ME certainly proved my reading preferences to be wrong; I can hardly wait to read the rest of the book and find out more about foster teenager Mila, the first person narrator. While Mila seems normal, there is something bad in her past, and I think her deceased mother's former boyfriend, Blake, is going to turn out to be extremely evil. However, Blake is a part of Mila's past, so how can a symbolic bouquet of poppies - something that ties in to Blake- appear on the porch of Mila's cabin at a suspiciously well-run farm, filled with foster children. The reference to plenty of spare clothing items in the farmhouse attic made a chill run down my spine as I thought about discarded children's clothing in Clive Barker's book The Thief of Always.
