Read in September, 2011

Well this book was not what I expected at all. I thought it was going to be a scary book and it turned out to be different then I thought. There was a little spookiness at the end but that was about it. I like that the story was different then what I have been reading lately for young adults. I like that the pictures are real pictures found at flea markets and other places by photograph collectors. I also like how the book ended and hope there is NOT a sequel. I did think it got a little long and it is one of those YA books that seems to just leave the parents out and parents who don't seem to care much about their kids. I am a little tired of books doing that just because it is a convenient way to remove parents from the story. 3 stars!

Tatiana Sorry to break it to you, but there is a sequel.


Angie I should've guessed. I will not be reading it.

I agree! It is definitely an annoying trend.
Sorry this wasn't better, though the photos sounded like a neat aspect.
