Title: OF THE TREES
Author: E.M. Fitch
Pub. Date: February 28, 2017
Format: Paperback, eBook
Cassie and Laney fancy themselves amateur ghost hunters. When a carnival comes to town, Cassie embraces the chance to try something new.
Carnival workers watch the girls with a collective gaze that ignites in Laney a dark and dangerous fascination, leaving Cassie unnerved.
It’s not just their age or the unsettling way they stare. There is something in the shifting of their skin and the way their features seem to change in the shadows.
Cassie can’s shake this sickening feeling that there’s more to the carnival than meets the eye.
When townspeople suddenly start dying and bloody warnings appear around town, Cassie is lured into a nightmare where trees whisper and strange, shape-shifting men haunt the backwoods she once hunted for ghosts with her best friend.
Then Laney goes missing, and only Cassie can get her back. But the creatures of the trees aren’t simply going to hand Laney over to Cassie without getting something in return.
I can definitely say that I have never read anything quite like this book. It was quite different and imaginative. It was a tale of friendship, love, and loss.
The writing was easy to follow. I enjoyed reading this book and trying to figure out what exactly was going on. It keeps you guessing…and I am still guessing and not quite sure. I am hoping that the author left this story this way because there will be another book and we will find out more. I am left with a lot of thoughts swirling through my head. I have so many ideas.
This may just be one of those books where the author wants the answer to be left to the reader. I definitely didn’t want the story to end and wanted more.
I really enjoyed these characters and they felt real and believable. The romance between Cassie and her love interest was sweet and innocent. It was that perfect friend/love relationship.
I enjoyed the fact that there was actually a parental presence in this YA story. Too many times we read novels of teens and it feels as if they live alone and parents don’t exist. I loved the parents in this book. I thought they were a wonderful addition to the story.
This story reminded me a bit of a Grimm Fairytale. It wasn’t too intense but it had that sort of feel to it. It also reminded me of a story you would read out of the Scary Stories anthology. Anyone remember that book? Am I dating myself here? Lol.
Overall I enjoyed reading this one. I just wish I would have had a little more answers. I am left feeling confused. However, it is a piece of fiction that makes me think and gets my wheels going.
If you are looking for something a little different from the norm, I would recommend this unique read.
