Haunted Waters

Jenkins, Jerry. Fabry, Chris. Haunted Waters. Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers. 2005

SUMMARY:
untitledBryce and Ashley are twin-tweens from Colorado who find adventure while on a short weekend trip. While dealing with bullying and helping thwart burglars, the twins learn to grow in their faith, stand-up for themselves, bond with each other and even save their own lives. This is Book 1 of the Red Rock Mysteries Series.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Though this book is written mainly for 8-12 year olds, I found myself turning pages quickly to follow the flurry of activity. The non-stop action, along with the short chapters and the unforeseen surprise ending, all lead to a very appealing read for all ages. I especially liked the real-life situations the twins faced as well as the guidance from parents to morally approach the issues (bullying, loss, acceptance). Warning…have Book 2, Stolen Secrets, within reach of finishing this book.

RATING:
4.5 (out of 5) pennies (See Ratings page for Youth Book Review explanation)
