SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Some see it... Some don't...
People in the town of Deer Park, Texas are vanishing. There is a strange museum, known as Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault, that appears overnight. Perrie Madeline's best friend and ex-boyfriend are among the missing. Perrie, along with her friend August, go on a pursuit to search for them in the mysterious museum. Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with their disappearances?
An upper YA book that intertwines horror with retellings
MY REVIEW -
This was lots of fun! I loved that there was a horror twist to some fairy tales! I know some of the original version of some fairy tales go more towards the gruesome side, so it was interesting to see Candace Robinson's take. I love that the characters go into many stories, and to many different settings. They were all wonderful! There was only one that seemed a little out of place in the book, but I still enjoyed it! Perrie is the lead, and the whole story is told from her point of view, she's a tough cookie, and she really holds her own while dealing with some really crazy things. All of the characters in this book are rather quirky, and I loved that! The ending would normally put me off, but I think it fit with this story, and I'd be interested to see the story continue. It almost felt like a Goosebumps type of book, but a more grown up version, and I loved the Goosebumps, so I was totally down with that! Unique, fun, and entertaining! Looking forward to more!
