Cover Better Than Content

I bought this book because it looked and sounded every bit as interesting as The Old Willis Place and The Doll in in the Garden. Instead I found it disappointing and very frustrating. The story was predictable, the adults were either complete air heads (Logan's mother)...
I bought this book because it looked and sounded every bit as interesting as The Old Willis Place and The Doll in in the Garden. Instead I found it disappointing and very frustrating. The story was predictable, the adults were either complete air heads (Logan's mother) or extremely rude and completely out of line in dealing with children which were not their own (Nina / Mr. DiSilvio). Nina's personality was not consistent. First she is friendly with the boys, the next she seems to be trying to seduce "Mr. DiSilvio" at a party, then she is lying to Logan's mother and purposely hurting two innocent children and in the end she is unsympathetic and rude to the innocent victim's daughter. I thought the reactions and conversations were unrealistic and the people, with the exception of perhaps Logan and his father, were ugly and annoying. In the end it is "Nina, Mr. DiSilvio and Logan's mother" who I found myself wishing had been murdered. That would have been justifiable homicide.

    This book is not very scary and is only exiciting in the last twenty or so pages. Starts of very slow and many typos.
