I have loved all of John Hart's books and I loved this one throughout the first half; could not put it down. But then it veered off into the supernatural. It became a horror story which is a genre I do not enjoy, wholly unbelievable and rather silly. And when the story ended, many threads of it were left unexplained. After all his previous wonderful books, this one was a huge disappointment. This one read like bad young adult fiction, the kind you don't want your kids to read. I get that he means to bring to light the legacy of slavery but this was not the way to do it.
