Reviewed by Melody, grade 11
This novel is not only told in thorough details and descriptions, but with spooky yet fascinating photography. The story consists of 382 pages, including a preview of the sequel, Hollow City. For the time being, there is only a sequel to this novel, which is equally as intriguing. Although this book is filled with dangerous missions, there are not many gory details, making it appropriate for young readers. I would suggest this novel to those in the age range of 12 to 17 who enjoy thrilling and spine-chilling novels. I consider this novel enjoyable by almost all ages; there are not many novels that can be entertaining and exciting for such a huge age range. For this reason, it has easily become one of my favorites. It is not the typical adventure-filled novel; it is filled with the learning of true friendship, bravery, and being content with oneself. The authentic, vintage found photographs that are included make this novel specifically unique and endlessly fascinating to read. I would not change a thing about this novel and would rate it a 5 out of 5 stars. As for the cover, it is completely accurate for the spooky ambience portrayed throughout the novel. Fortunately, there is a movie in the making for this novel set to release in 2016!
