I don't read a lot of YA fiction but since I got my kindle I have been trying to read a wider range of books. The author has been promoting the book on Amazon's kindle forums so I thought I would give it a try. Jimmy Stone has been having a hard time of it, first his parents come home from the hospital without his soon to be baby sister, then his mum dies and his dad decides they should move and turns into a beer swilling couch potato. Jimmy has no friends, other than faithful dog Trex, until David befriends him to help him avoid the school bullies. The 3 of them, exploring woods behind Jimmy's house, end up in mysterious ghost town and discover that to return home they have to complete a series of tasks.

This is obviously setting up a series, it is revealed Ghost Town is one of seven other realms outside our world. The first third of the book is primarily setting up Jimmy's back story and introducing him as the main protagonist. The next part introduces Ghost Town and the boys find out a bit about what is in store for them, and in the final third they carry out their first task.

I'm quite a bit older than the target audience and my daughter is only a toddler so I haven't got anyone of that sort of age to help me judge the book from the ideal viewpoint. For me Jimmy's hardships were covered for too long and repeated more than necessary, but I suspect for a younger reader it is setting up the idea that you can overcome any difficulties to become as strong person. There is still an element of mystery about what became of his soon to be sister and mum though, which I'm hoping will be revealed in future books. We do see Jimmy developing in the book, which I liked, especially becoming more assertive.

At 22, I am not the target audience for this book. However, I do enjoy the occasional Young Adults fiction book when I'm in the mood for a nice bit of light reading and am pleased to say that this one did not disappoint. My only slight criticisms (and I emphasise the word slight) are that I found the constant reminders about Jimmy's sad home life a bit tedious and unnecessary and also that after spending half the book setting the scene, I felt the actual Ghost Town part of the story could have been longer and more detailed. I suspect the repetition thing is just the downside of reading a book aimed at a much younger audience than myself and I think the fact I wanted to hear more about Ghost Town is actually a good thing- it's a sign that I was gripped by the alternate realm and didn't want the story to end! Like others have said, this very much feels like the start of a series and I must say that when I finished the book, I found myself wanting to know what happens next to Jimmy. So I'll be eagerly awaiting the follow up (which I assume will focus purely on the next part of Jimmy's task now the scene has firmly been set in this first book) and I hope it comes out soon. Any adult who is a bit of a big kid at heart will enjoy reading this- it is perfect for when you fancy curling up on the sofa for a couple of hours one lazy Sunday afternoon.

I enjoyed this book as a light short read but would not buy any more for myself in what I presume is going to become a series of books. It is aimed at a much younger market than my advanced years and do feel this should be made clearer in advertising blurbs.
However, as a debut novel, it is promising and I feel if marketed at the appropriate age group would be successful.
