I am back with another blog tour with The Write Reads!! This go around, we read Scareground by Angela Kecojevic. Sit back, and discover this new fantasy youth read.

Scaregound Blurb:

Roll up, roll up, the Scareground is in town!

Twelve-year-old Nancy Crumpet lives above a bakery and her life is a delightful mix of flour, salt, and love.

Yet her mind is brimming with questions no one can answer: Why did her birth parents disappear? Why can she speak with the sky? And why must she keep her mysterious birthmark hidden?

Everything changes when the Scareground returns to Greenwich. When Nancy and her best friend meet the fair’s spooky owner, Skelter, and discover a world full of dark magic and mystery, she must confront her greatest fears to get to the truth. But is Nancy ready for the secrets the Scareground will reveal?

My Review of Scareground:

Overall, this was a really good read. There were some darker elements to the book, but that just made it all the more enjoyable. This is one that I think my oldest son would enjoy. The background and the story for Nancy is really neat, and some of her abilities that are presented through the book just make it that much more interesting. I think this will be a winner for many young adult readers – and of course, the adults who enjoy reading fun books too!

Get ready for a scare and some fun – and discover your younger side again!
