    6. Good conceptally good concept Gill really focused on the intense parts but I feel there was a struggle in bridging things I m just not really sure And the proofreaders them Many grammar mistakes and incorrect word usage that I tried to overlook but just could not I really wanted to take my red pen to it so that just really turned me off It s definitely a good story but it needs a bit polish and shine on it in my opinion The good thing is though, it definitely has its moments of horror so there [...]


    7. Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for an e copy of this book.I really wanted to like this book The cover is awesome, and the first line was great, but I just could not finish this book I found it confusing and hard to keep track of everything going on in it I read about 25% of the book, and then I ended up skimming to the end I am hoping some of the teens in my library will have a different opinion than me It s also pretty high school in it s maturity level Maybe I will try again later, b [...]


    8. Ugh I put this down, forgot I was reading it, lost it and the found it and went I am not wasting any time on this It s a great idea kind of what I could make out of the plot Written not bad, Just not for me, I guess And I wish I had been able to enjoy it.I didn t care about anyone but the best friend It was overly weird not in a good way , complicated, a little boring and just made me feel meh I got half way through.


    9. I liked this book was it was clearly geared towards Young Adults Had I known that before my purchase, I was not have bought the book The book is simple and easy to read rather quickly I was also a bit unhappy with character development, seeming the extra characters only needing to be there as a matter of convenience.


    10. like a cross between a Stephen King novel and the movie good Wiil hunting liked the main characters, and it got scarier as it went which was really cool.One of the best young adult horror novels i ve read.


    11. Heh it started off good but quickly lost its way Damnit I was really excited for this book Still a decent Halloween read if you re interested.P.S I might not be a native to Boston but I can that the author isn t even Very stereotypical of the Boston accent and mannerisms



    12. I liked the concept, but the story was very confusing at times and the characters weren t engaging I didn t really even care how it ended.



    13. Scary, creepy and suspenseful Different type of horror Like the strong female characters in Willow and Siobhan Unique storyline that ties in with the Salem witches.


    14. This book was lengthy, but I am not complaining It was very action packed and very original I had never read anything like this and did a good job at keeping me intrigued the whole time I would consider reading other book like this Also the ending was very subtle and peaceful which I liked.
