Review: Cemetery WalkUser Review - Kaitlyn - Goodreads
The book was interesting and I really enjoyed Powers-Douglas's personality evident in her writing. However, I was hoping for some more research and academic information to use in my own research paper. But even though it didn't have a lot of that, I enjoyed the book. Read full review
