Far Far Away. By Tom McNeal. Alfred A. Knopf/Random House, 2013. 369 pages. $17.99
Far Far Away is a whimsical tale of a boy named Jeremy Johnson Johnson who is in communication with an ancient ghost, Jacob Grimm. Jacob has been assigned to keep the boy safe from the troubles that lurk in the quaint town of Never Better. Readers will be sweetly absorbed in the adventures of Jeremy and his dear friend, Ginger, as they work to save the Johnson Family’s bookstore. Similarities to Hansel and Gretel arise as the story unfolds. Nothing remains a secret in a small town, and this may harm or it may work to the advantage of the curious companions. The ancient ghost serves as a reminder that a happy ending is not always in store for such an eerie narrative of temptation, revenge, and survival.
