    This is one of the first books I saw that seemed to take advantage of my iPad that wasn't a textbook or an ad for some show on TV and it was cheap The whole book is black and white but the photos are wonderful and big It is a fictionalized account of the life of a girl in 1800s New Orleans who dies of yellow fever A gruesome first hand factual account of her actual death is included in the form of the image of a handwritten letter by the attending priest along with what has to be an actor reading the letter aloud You learn all this in the beginning before the stories begin The girl is dead and the something happens after that so she does not move onThe stories begin in the voice of a little girl very much alive in the setting describing mostly very happy things These words are layed atop very lovely photos of the area each one usually including a specific antiue doll It is a bit mysterious in the way it transitions from the death of the main character to the way the stories are told which seem to be the character remembering her life from the afterlife The doll in the photos seems to be some kind of focus or totem representing her attention perhaps the externalization of her now bodiless perspective It's moody lightweight and easily engaging for as long as it lasts The last story ends with insight into the girl's life but leaving you wishing there was explanation of her supernatural current stateIt's title suggests that the story will get around to explaining it in later volumes I have not seen those anywhere yet but I hope the author will complete this at some point You can tell there is a worldviewsystemview behind what is happening and I really want to know what it isIn short for under 5 it's an effective but short and moody distraction from the day and hopefully the beginning of a series that continues to reveal about this poor girlCan be found for iPad and Mac at iBooks
