This is one of the best books that I have ever read. If you are looking for a good mystery, this book is for you. This book is about a boy named Jacob, who hears strange stories from his grandpa. When he gets older, though, he thinks his grandpa is going crazy, like everyone else. Then one day he gets a strange call from his grandpa saying he should “come as quick as he can.” When he gets there, he finds his grandpa dead. Sad and deeply disturbed, Jacob decides to go where his grandfather’s stories began. What he finds there, he can’t believe. Maybe his grandfather wasn’t lying after all. This book is a little strange, though, and has some weird pictures, but if you love thrillers, this book is great for you!
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
This pretty good book is about this guy named Jacob and his grandfather. Jacob’s grandfather used to tell him about his stories of being in a children’s home during World War II. The children that were in that home were very peculiar. One girl could levitate, and another boy had bees living inside of him. So after Jacob’s grandfather’s mysterious death he goes to the island to see if the children are still alive. And they might just be… One thing I disliked about this book was that it took awhile for it to get on its feet.
