The Shadows (The Books of Elsewhere #1)
3 stars224 pages
For a children's book, this was very dark. And scary. And creepy. I don't think I'd let my 10 year old read it - although she does like those Goosebumps books, so maybe.
One positive is that the story can stand alone. There is no silly cliffhanger at the conclusion, but there are some loose ends that can be tied up in another book.
I doubt, though, that I'll read the next books in the series. I just wasn't super impressed.
