Overview

Twelve-year-old J.B.'s visions leave him sweaty, lightheaded, and certain he's turning into a freak-or worse, going insane.

The visions stem from a family curse. An ancestor stole the Granville fortune, and now J.B.'s entire family will suffer. To break the curse, J.B. must find and return the Granville's stolen property.

But he's not the only one searching for the treasure. His journey leads to a dark forest where he'll battle his worst fears. And when he meets two others who share the missing pieces of his visions and suffer from the same curse, the three soon realize they need to work together to break the curse before it's too late.

About the Author

Kelly Hashway fully admits to being one of the most accident-prone people on the planet, but that didn't stop her from jumping out of an airplane at ten thousand feet one Halloween. Maybe it was growing up reading R.L. Stine's Fear Street books that instilled a love of all things scary and a desire to live in a world filled with supernatural creatures, but she spends her days writing speculative fiction for young adults, middle graders, and young children. Kelly's also a sucker for first love, which is why she writes YA and NA romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she's not writing, Kelly works as an editor and also as Mom, which she believes is a job title that deserves to be capitalized. She is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

What do you think of when you hear the words “Enchanted Forest?” Lovely fairy like creatures with transparent wings flittering about? The sound of music drifting through the air? Sweet smelling flowers and shiny leafed trees? A forest you’d love to visit? In Author Kelly Hashway’s MG novel, THE CURSE OF THE GRANVILLE FORTUNE, J. B. and his sister, Holly, become lost in a forest, a forest where their worst nightmares become a reality. J. B. has visions. An old woman tells him he’ll be cursed until he returns what was taken. In his vision two others are with him. He doesn’t know who they are or what was taken, just that he was cursed. In their search for meaning to his visions, J. B. and Holly end up in Braeden Forest, where they might possibly find the answers. THE CURSE OF THE GRANVILLE FORTUNE has a lot of characters, a lot of twists and turns and surprises. People are not always what they seem, and J. B., along with Holly and a girl named Noelle, don’t know who to trust in their quest to discover what was stolen, by whom, and what it means to each of the kids and their families. There’s plenty of action for young readers. J. B. is a good older brother, protective of his sister and Noelle. And you may just be surprised at some of the twists and turns in the story. This book would make a nice addition to school libraries, public libraries and your own personal library. I was provided a copy of this book for my honest review. ###

Very cool book for young adults! J.B. is a typical young man until he starts to have visions and can't figure out why they are occurring. Turns out he is cursed by the Granville Fortune that was stolen, and his entire family is cursed because his ancestor was accused of it. So he sets out on a journey through a dark forest with all kinds of danger, and when he meets others who have been having the same visions they continue the journey together to try and discover the truth. It is a thrilling adventure book with lots of twists and turns around every corner :) Along for the ride is J.B.'s sister Holly, who helps him try to solve the case and find out what really happened to the fortune. I hope there will be another book in this series that continues to unfold the saga. A great read for any age even if geared towards young adults. Definitely pick this one up for your youngster and give them something awesome to read :) I received a complimentary ebook to do this review :)
