Teresa Crumpton writing as T.C. Galinari brings us a different side of her writing with a little ghost story!!
Parents are always overreacting. “Stay away from strangers,” they say. “Don’t go near the woods,” they warn. And it’s all so pointless until there’s a tragic accident.
And here, there was a tragic accident. One that haunts me to this day. It still leaves me with a broken heart, missing my brother. But this story? It’s not about me. It’s about him.

Fly Girl’s Review
I’ve read a lot of Teresa’s work since she was working on her master’s degree eons ago, but this is one of her most imaginative and the story is fleshed out super well. It even creeped me out a bit reading the suspenseful scary parts. I don’t usually read speculative fiction so this one caught me off guard. I also didn’t get to see it until it was finished in production so just like the rest of the world, I started reading it on release day. I know that was a while ago, but I’ve been busy so I’m giving you my look at it now…I couldn’t let it go by without mentioning it in amongst some of my favorite stories.
The story is about a little boy who is trying to stop the local bullies when he discovers something else, an angel. It isn’t quite that simple though, there is discussion about fate, how we transition from this world to the next, and what is considered a good soul or a bad soul. What happens to your soul after this world compared between good and bad? She explores the idea that sometimes we can’t know how things will affect us, but fate will always win out on your day. In between birth and death we get to make choices that determine whether we are good or bad and that determines how we are treated at crossover and where we go.
Bells don’t always mean an angel gets his wings, sometimes it is just one good deed that shows the heart. So although this is a bit scary the ending brings you back into the light and makes the story feel more like a fairytale than just a regular story and will stay with you long after you finish.
I know this is a pretty short review, but I don’t want to spoil the whole book for anyone because the details make it. In my opinion this is not young adult fiction, but does fit the paranormal and speculative realms. I’m giving this a 5 of 5 because as any good fairytale, it stays with you a long time. Sometimes forever. My most memorable fairytale is The Snow-Queen by Hans Andersen. My first version was translated by Miss Alma Alleyne from the German. I’m sure when I’m in my 80’s Little Boy Blue will still be with me, just as The Snow-Queen has been these last 40+ years.
