It’s where the dead children go. So already partway into the book, I was battling with my own thoughts as I read. Yep, I got scared with those thoughts.

It is a good book, but it is clearly evrelost children’s book. An older kid Mary Hightower her name comes from her dominion of the world trade center thinks she knows what is best for everyone else, and it is in her best interest to keep kids from passing on.
