A very nice review of One for Sorrow in one of the local papers:
Chris Barzak’s first novel, “One for Sorrow,” is like a window into the metaphysical world.
Told through the voice of a troubled but honest teen, it’s depiction of what it’s like to be unhappily dead is so believable, it’s like a primer on the subject.
On its most basic level, “One for Sorrow” is a ghost story, and it can bring a chill to your spine. But not because it’s scary. Because it is so profound and moving.
