    A reviewer

    The title of my book is the light on hog back hill. The main character name is Hadley . She has to binder home by her self. The plot of the book is were this teenage girl name Hadley and a teenage boy name josh goes to contemplate the light on hog back hill. It reminds me of the time me and my dad seen a light in a abated house. What I thought about the book over all I though it was very gook and you might like the book like I did.
