Summary: Allison Mills writes about a family of ghost busters. But they are not like in the movies. It’s only a grandma, with her daughter and her grand-daughter who is full of questions. They visit houses and help other people to exorcise ghosts that are haunting them. Also birds can be ghosts as well.
Analysis: This short story is about grief and letting go. It has interesting themes such as:
- passing a skill from a generation to another.
- discovery of oneself and growing up
- how to treat ghosts
- face death of a close family member
We follow the grand-daughter’s point of view as she grows up around ghosts. Another interesting idea is that you can catch a ghost on your hair!
