by D'Ana B., Lindale Middle School

This is a story about seventh graders, Rae and Caden, who must save their small town of Whispering Pines from the things that lurk in it. Rae's father vanished about a year back and everyone thinks he ran away to go be with a new family, but Rae knows what really happened. He got taken. But no one will listen to her, and her mom puts her into therapy, but it doesn't work because there's nothing wrong with her. Rae, her sister and mom move to Whispering Pines. Caden has lived in Whispering Pines his whole life and he knows how weird the town is, but when his brother goes missing and it may be his fault, he knows that he has to stop whatever is going on. 
This book was a spine tingling thriller. The descriptive language in this book had me cringing and wriggling in my skin! It sweeps you up into the book and makes you feel like you are experiencing everything that is happening. I hated that the book ended on a cliffhanger, but that only makes me want to read the sequel even more! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read thrillers and mysteries. I’d recommend it to anyone from age 8 and up. I loved reading it and you will too!
