Dead Voices by Katherine Arden
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
While I liked this one a little less than Small Spaces, it did have the benefit of already-established characters and a slight progression in the greater mystery of the Smiling Man.
Overall, however, it's mostly just a slightly creepy ghost story with slightly powerful mirrors and party games.
Not that this is a BAD thing, but it's NOT scary. It's rather Disney-Level. Of course, that's often the expectation with any MG book, no?
(Yes, I know of many examples where MG does not equate with mild.) This one, however, is.
For those of you looking for a safe choice for your children, these two fit the bill.
