This is the first book I've read by Cliff McNish. The title met all my expectations for a ghost story. It was very creepy!!
Jack and his mom move into an old house in the country. Sharing the home with them are Ann who died sixty-five years ago when she was 14; Oliver, Charlie, and seven-year-old Gwyneth. All are ghost children....spirits of the dead! Jack discovers their presence and finds a way to communicate with the four. BUT, along the way he also discovers the presence of the Ghost Mother. She is an evil entity and will go to any length to find a human body to live through. Jack's mother is taken over by this spirit. Will Jack be able to find a way to release his mother? Or..... will she be forever trapped in the Nightmare Passage?
