Books, newspapers, and bread and jam were cast in heaps on the table. Someone had spilled milk on the floor

Books, newspapers, and bread and jam were cast in heaps on the table. Someone had spilled milk on the floor. Sally longed to lift the front page of one of the newspapers out of the butter, but she was not sure she would be able to. She won. dered whose turn it had been to do the washing-up. She could see a mountain of white school china sticking up out of the sink.

Set in the English countryside, it features a teenage ghost who is one of four sisters, and observes the family, unable to remember which one she is. She is from seven years in the future, in the aftermath of her "accident", so it is a kind of a time slip story, but she has no memories of those seven years.

It is a common feature in most of her books to have a distracted or negligent parents, but in this one it is almost autobiographical. Diana’s parents ran a place for city boys to come during the holidays and in the book the sisters’ parents ran a boys’ boarding school

Sally-no, she was not Sally, she must be Imogen or Fenella-hung among the buzzing flies in the empty kitchen room, trying to consider some of the things she now knew. But as before, her intelligence. as a ghost seemed as limited as a narrow torch beam. What was outside it hardly seemed to exist. The flies seemed to exist more, and the fading breakfast smells from beyond the green door. None of the sisters seemed to be awake yet. There was silence apart from the flies and a distant hum from School

Diana Wynne Jones' work always make me grab my head exclaiming "this so clever and original, how did she ever think of that?" while they read effortlessly. Can't think of sth I could write without adding spoilers. I believe this was considered an "adult" book but all of Dianna Wynne Jones Books are Adult in that all ages can read them and enjoy them.

There's been an accident!Something's wrong!

She doesn't know who she is, and doesn't know why she's invisibly floating through the buildings and grounds of a half-remembered boarding school. Then, to her horror, she encounters the ancient evil that four peculiar sisters have unwittingly woken -- and learns she is their only hope against a deadly danger.

I think the story behind this book is unique -- the main character starts off confused, only to discover she is bodiless and has no idea why, except an overwhelming panic of "There's been an accident!". She turns out to be a ghost and it takes several chapters for her to figure out which of four sisters she is a ghost of -- and yet, all four are still alive and healthy. There is some jumping back and forth in time but it is not meretricious, and it is clear when it happens, except maybe the first time when it is not clear to the character and so cannot be clear to the reader if the whole confusion thing is to be pulled off. Once it is discovered what has gone on and what will soon go on that is, well, rather deadly, the ghost has to figure out how to stop the bad things from happening. The way the bad thing is stopped is rather cheesy and predictable, if you're in the "feel good" kiddie novel mindset, but that is the only fault of the book. Otherwise, the characters are excellently portrayed and very unique, and the book has a lot more depth to it than you'd think.

A slightly disjointed story with unlikeable characters eventually lead to one of dwj's few perfectly wrapped up endings. Though the plot of the story was not up to her usual standards, the ending was moving, surprising, and extremely satisfying. Worth a read for that alone.

Diana Wynne Jones' work always make me grab my head exclaiming "this so clever and original, how did she ever think of that?" while they read effortlessly. Can't think of sth I could write without adding spoilers. Powerful stuff. I have heard the theory diana's fans are in either the "Archer's Goon" camo or the "Fire and Hemlock" camp. i definitely belong to the former, yet i believe this one is more similiar to the latter. Utterly enjoyable, surprising, moving, thought-provoking. in a word: Diana.

awesome
I have so far enjoyed all of Diana Wynne Jones' books, and this one was no exception. It's a good story as well as an adventure. Besides just that, having a favorite author consistently providing good stories of varying subjects is refreshing.
