Excellent story for young readers, does have some words that might be hard for younger than 12 but can be conquered.
it was very slow to start with, but once i got into it i couldnt stop and the ending was amazing. great read.
This takes place in New England. The time! You need to decide that for yourself.This book gives a new meaning to the word -repete- I figured out the plot half way thru but could'nt wait to see how it did end. What a surprise!
I am nine years old.I love mystery and suspense and this is one of the best I have read!!!I could not put this book down!!
