I am back with a new book review! Dread Wood was one of my favorites of the year. If you are ready for a fun read, then you are going to want to read this book! I am looking forward to sharing this one with my boys.
When four students of Dread Wood are given detention, they are not sure they want to tell anyone why they are really there. It is not long before weird things begin to happen, starting with the disappearance of their gym teacher. It is as if the ground swallows him whole – but Angelo is sure that he saw an arm pulling the teacher underground. Naira, Gustov, and Hallie are pretty sure he is telling a tall tale – until they see the groundskeepers acting funny – and feeding chickens to holes in the ground that are opening.
These four misfits are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, figure out what is going on at their school, and save their gym teacher if possible.
WOW! This was one book that I had a hard time putting down. I had started it and then walked away for a couple of days. When I finally sat down to read some more, I finished the book before I could stop. There was non-stop enjoyment, and it was one of those books that young adults will love. Give the gift of a book that young ones will enjoy, and discover a new adventure!
