In their backyard cemetery, they travel to the underworld for answers and uncover a plot to surface the evil entities that would otherwise burn in the Lake of Fire, have risen again through oil pumps that are bottled up as a tonic medicine for the ground above. The tonic goes fast, and the host takes over the body when the body perishes. Can the Goodbyes hilarious gaffes and revelations plug up the works?

5 out of 5 fairies

The Goodbye Family is charming, funny, and brilliant. If I could give this a higher rating, I would. It has the perfect mix of thrilling story line and comedic relief. If you enjoy books that are a little odd like the ones written by Roald Dahl, you will absolutely LOVE this book. Readers young and old can easily lose themselves in this book and spend hours with a smile on their face as they follow the adventures of the Goodbye family.
