Although this book is about 12 year old's it was a great story and I don't often cry at books but the speech Gabriel made was brilliant for a 12 year old and really choked me up. Another lovely story from the pen of Bree WOLF. Highly recommended.

Gabriel is virtually ignored at home in New York, and spends most of his time inside video games. When his parents ship him out to stay with his grandparents in the country for a ‘couple of weeks’ he is completely at a loss – no internet, no games, nothing. Gradually he discovers he can go outside, which leads to meeting people. Fortunately there is a treasure hunt set up by the school’s seniors to give kids a challenge over the summer vacation, and he finds his more cerebral ways helpful when it comes to solving clues. He teams up with some other kids, all of them slight misfits, even if the others do live there, and unravels the mystery of the haunted house… which brings both joy and sorrow, and was so beautifully written that it even had me in tears!

It’s a book that gave our on-line reading group a huge range of responses. I found it read well, the kids were believable in their own ways, and didn’t notice any particular dialogue difficulties, unlike other members of the group. I wondered whether people expected all the kids to speak in the way their own did, or whether there is a ‘standard US kid speak’ outside which kids who copy their elders’ speech patterns are thought to be peculiar. Maybe I read it in a different accent – which is certainly the case. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the writing, which risked getting mawkish at times, but managed not to turn me off, which was a great feat!

It’s a lovely story, which risks being one of those ‘misfit finds friendship’ tropes, but pulls out with powerful writing and keen visualisation. I could certainly feel the heat, see the river and the woods, and the potential for adventure. Hannah’s adventure is particularly well handled.

A classic children's summer adventure.
Easy to read, and with engaging characters, Bree Wolf guides the young reader through the trials and tribulations of a young boy's summer of self-discovery.
The plot is interesting, and full of fun, but the story also presents more serious issues with a sensitivity suitable for the younger reader.
I would have loved to read this, as a child, and I would highly recommend it.

A touching and moving story told with insight and flare by an author who is coming into her own. It is part adventure, part coming of age drama; and with a great ensemble cast of characters! (Go and discover them for yourselves!) If you like your fiction well grounded and in a familiar world you can truly identify with, then you’ll love this. A highly enjoyable and a rewarding read.
