These are parts 1 and 2 of this book. Part 3 puts the first two parts together. Ed and Katz meet. Two kids. 14 and 12 years old on their own in a place no one should be. Both bright and resourceful figure it all out. Figure what out? You have to read the book.
The Girl in the Hotel is written very realistically, considering how odd everything about this hotel is. Through Ed and Katz eyes you experience a whirlwind of Twilight Zone quality terror. There are a lot of weird characters in this story. They keep things very interesting. Nothing and no one is well defined. It’s more of a learning process through Ed and Katz
The Girl in the Hotel holds the spot for the weirdest book I’ve ever read. I loved it and couldn’t put it down.
