I don’t usually read novel classed as YA, it is a genre I avoid however the description of this book caught my eye and I made a exception.
The novel itself was actually quite good for a debut work. This bring a new twist to horror by adding a lot of emotion to it and I was surprised that the novel needed up with a happy ending. This novel is only 40 pages and can quite easily be read in one sitting. This book not only has spooky moment but is also filled with happy moments and lesson on friendship.
I would recommend this book to fans of the YA genre or perhaps readers who want to experience a YA novel for the first time.
