Publisher's Summary

Stan Weir is mourning a tragic loss when he meets a mysterious nine-year-old girl, who claims to be the reincarnated spirit of his late wife. Marcy Keef is a single mother trying to make ends meet when her daughter Erin starts describing 'past life memories'. Neither wants to believe Erin, but as violent secrets are revealed, the truth becomes harder to deny. 

With echoes of Stephen King, Second Skin is a propulsive thriller about grief, guilt and truths better left unknown.

Really?

I think I would have preferred a supernatural explanation than the one we got. Erin must be the cleverest tween on the planet. So glad it was only a novella. I’d have hated to have listened to an entire book and gotten that ridiculous ending for my efforts.

I just had to read this in one go

The twist at the end was a complete surprise.
The author had me faithfully tuned-in to the initial premise and I did not have an inkling of the truth. This is the most enjoyment I have got out of a book for a while. Recommended.

Started good, and then was meh

The story was great until about three-quarters off the way through, then went downhill fast. The twist ending was like, "whuuuut", and not in a good way. It's like lighting the string of a firework.. you're watching the fire reach the firework... and then PFFT.. nothing!
It's not that bad, but not that good either.
Narration was satisfactory :)

I loved it.

I really love this author and the narrator was pretty good for this one, not too distracting. the only character the narrator didn't nail was Barb in my opinion.
