Sal has a best friend named Phoebe. Though Phoebe is really scared because someone keeps leaving her family mysterious messages. If you think there are no more problems than your dead wrong.
The first problem is when anyone touches Phoebe she flinches whenever someone touches her, she thinks it is the lunatic. The next problem is with Mrs. Cadaver.

Finally, the last problem in the book is when Sal keeps on hearing the words rush ,rush ,rush and hurry,hurry ,hurry.
Each story fits into the main narratives and also resonates and amplifies the meaning and substance of other stories. At the same time, each story plays a distinct role in the narrative, demonstrating the power stories have to affect human experience and consciousness. Phoebe uses her story about the lunatic to ward off other, more threatening, reason all Mrs. Winter bottom’s disappearance. Sal uses Phoebe’s story as a way to relive her own story and come to a better understanding of it. Grandparents stories provide Sal with a sense of her own family history and with a model for her own life and loves.
