Marjorie Glatt feels like a ghost. A practical thirteen year old in charge of the family laundry business, her daily routine features unforgiving customers, unbearable P.E. classes, and the fastidious Mr. Saubertuck who is committed to destroying everything she’s worked for.
Wendell is a ghost. A boy who lost his life much too young, his daily routine features ineffective death therapy, a sheet-dependent identity, and a dangerous need to seek purpose in the forbidden human world.
When their worlds collide, Marjorie is confronted by unexplainable disasters as Wendell transforms Glatt’s Laundry into his midnight playground, appearing as a mere sheet during the day. While Wendell attempts to create a new afterlife for himself, he unknowingly sabotages the life that Marjorie is struggling to maintain.
Sheets illustrates the determination of a young girl to fight, even when all parts of her world seem to be conspiring against her. It proves that second chances are possible whether life feels over or life is over. But above all, it is a story of the forgiveness and unlikely friendship that can only transpire inside a haunted laundromat.
This starts off slow and isn’t cheery. The artwork for this matches perfectly with the story. Villain has the personality that everyone should be trying to punch in face but aren’t. Love that the teacher who has her back is her swim coach. Very realistic customer interaction but feels harsh for her age inside a family business. But people in general are assholes.
This story deals with depression and death. It shows different reactions to death and the experiences that it causes. From the villain to Wendell the ghost. Overall it’s a good read and would recommend reading. I downloaded this through Netgalley, I’m fairly certain auto-approved or it is one of those that permits people to download without having to wait for acceptance.
Comes out at the end of August. Definitely a teen read whether younger or older teenager.
