The Secret Lake
By Karen Inglis
From the moment I saw the cover I couldn't take my eyes off it because I wanted to know more about the characters. Emma was one of my favourites because she is very sweet and a loyal friend to Stella. However, I liked Jack too because he talked in a funny cockney language.
This book is a time-travel mystery, adventure and thriller. It is a mystery because they don't know where Harry has disappeared to. It is an adventure because they are trying to discover where Harry has gone. It is time-travel because they go back to a hundred years ago and it is a thriller because everybody is everybody!
The chapters were short and very appealing to read. Each chapter drew you on to the next one. It was an imaginative story which made me want to read more. It was easy to understand her writing.
There were many twists and turns along the way. I predicted some events but most were wrong. This is what kept me interested in the book.
I would recommend "The Secret Lake" to boys and girls aged 7 and up. I would award this book 4 stars out of 5 because although I enjoyed it I have read better stories.
