Elise, Sir Harry Smith Community College
A Skinful of Shadows
I was promised an angry ghost so dived headfirst in and pushed through the monotony of the first few chapters, only to find all the fuss was about an abused bear.
I've been told it gets better and there's more ghosts but the friendship between possessed and possess-ee formed and I couldn't believe this book was aimed at 12+, as it stunk of something I would read age 9 and feel inexplicably happy at the ending that was tied with a bow.
I stopped reading at around the halfway mark.
But as an older reader I might have expected too much, it was a nice idea for a book and those lower down the school probably thought it as great. It will not be getting my vote but i would consider recommending it to those younger than myself.
