Judah Deason- Interesting but not a success
The book, the seance, is about a girl named Lauren who goes to school in Texas and lives with her aunt Melvamay with whom also has another girl living with her named Sarah, who's kind of mysterious, and also lauren and Sarah aren't really friends because she sneaks out alot and guys drop her off late at night and they never talk about it, and it kind of annoys Lauren. The two girls are invited to a seance that is hosted by a girl, named roberta, who supposedly can speak to the dead and has physicic powers. So all the girls get there to have a seance, they turn off the lights and into it someone screams really loud so they turn the lights back on and find out that Sarah is missing, the police find her body laying in a swamp dead. So in attempts to figure out who did it they have another little seance but the same thing happens again, someone goes missing and they later find her dead too. But I won't spoil the ending cause that's the best partWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
My opinion of this book is not really a good one. A lot of the dialogue is really antiquated, not that that's a big deal I just don't like antiquated teenage dialogue. It also seemed not to be written that well, it was attention grabbing at points but overall it's not really that great. I may recommend this to people that like the whodunit mystery novels but there are probably more enjoyable ones out there. I'm not saying this book was terrible, I just didn't like it. The part where you found out who the killer was was a good part but it's like that for most whodunit mystery novels so it wasn't that much of a feat. I did like, however, the whole plot and everything cause it sounds really interesting and it would have been a book I highly favored if it was just written better. All in all I did enjoy this book, but not enough to say I liked it cause there were few parts I enjoyed in comparison to just fill in parts I had to read. So overall it's ok but not the best

definately not my fave. her other books are good (such as the haunting and the weekend was murder) but this one was a little... wierd. it was 'deflated' in a way. it was a little confusing at times... like what the heck is supposed to be happening. anyways, this isnt one of my high list books but it wasn't TOO bad (hence why it got 2 stars instead of 1)Was this review helpful?
