it was ok

When strange dark clouds roll into Griever’s Mill, Ben and his family think it is just a summer storm. However the clouds begin to darken the earth and in it’s wake people are randomly turning into glass statues. As everyone struggles to find answers Ben’s own family starts to divide. The beginning of this story was great, lots of questions, and anticipation as to what would happen next. However the end was greatly disappointing. Nothing was answered, why did it happen, what was it? Basically the phenomenon ended and life went back to normal, whatever normal could be after that. It would have been okay to end it without answers if there were a second book to address the discovery of what it was and how the people of earth fought it, and ultimately won or not. Although I loved the concept, I'm only giving two stars because if I knew it had no ending I wouldn't have read it in the first place.
