A disturbing though often hilarious memoir, told uniquely through the eyes of a young child. This is a coming-of-age story of a boy, growing up in 1960s England. As shocking as it is, this is a story of survival and a boy's desperate attempts to save his mother from the madness and the horror. "Mitchell's overview of then rundown Portsmouth, England in the 1960s shocks as he deftly bypasses all the clich├ęd elements of the 60s via gruesome images of destitution, a cast of unbelievably crazy misfits and the smells, local language, and music of a bleak and impoverished part of England. It's a wakeup call that not everyone experienced the 'summers of love.' The most amazing aspect of the book is his ability to re-capture his own voice at ages 5, 7, 8 and 13. John Mitchell's debut memoir dazzles. It's original, clever, and amid all the horror, funny." -- IndieReader "The title suggests a ghost story, but a boy witnessing firsthand the onset and evolution of a mental breakdown is as bloodcurdling as anything supernatural, perhaps more so. A startling, sometimes-chilling tale of mental illness and familial abuse." -- Kirkus Reviews "The Boy who Lived with Ghosts is a brilliant read. John's story triggered a lot of emotions for me when I was reading and it brought me close to tears...I think it's simply brilliant, I am going to recommend this book to you because it offers an insight into John's heart-breaking childhood which will make you appreciate all that you have a lot more, The Boy who Lived with Ghosts is definitely a worthwhile read." -- Online Book Club
