also seen her outside a grocery store and various other
places. Tim also saw his sister in Camp Crandall, Vietnam,
where he had been a pearl diver on the body squad. He knew
deep down inside it was probably his desire to want to "see"
his sister. However, the one thing that really puzzled him was
the fact that there were no little girls at Camp Crandall. Tim
has also been receiving strange cryptic e-mails. Where were
they coming from? Could they possibly be coming from someone
who is dead?

eerie mystery to it. It leaves so much to our imagination,
which is good because it really makes you think as you are reading
the story. Peter Straub shows us that he is a great
storyteller. You should add this one to your reading
list. You will find it very entertaining.
