The Old Willis Place By: Mary Downing Hahn

Diana and Georgie have lived in the woods behind the old Willis place for as long as they could remember. Neither of them can seem to recall where they might have lived before. Even though they see the house every day, there is one thing that they have practically embedded in their minds. Never go near the old Willis place. The other rule is to never make friends with the caretakers. Diana and Georgie have been making good on those rules, until the new caretaker comes along.

Unlike the other caretakers, this one has a daughter named Lissa. Diana becomes intrigued with her. She can not resist the temptation of finally having a friend. She never knew that if she became friends with Lissa, she and Georgie would finally be released from the bond of the old Willis place.

I really liked this book, but the best thing that I liked was that she described the scene around what was happening really well.

There isn't anything that I don't like about this book that I can think of.

Daniel is the worst at his chess club in Loon Lake High.He is then suspiciously invited to a father son chess tournament. He then learns that his father is a grandmaster, the ultimate rank achievable in chess. His father teaches him chess and explains the past to his son. This book is rather heartwarming in a way but it's still a good read despite that (yes, some people don't like all the all the feelsy stuff in the books they read). I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars (I'm not a realistic fiction guy myself). I would definitely recommend it though especially to realistic fiction readers.

Nora Grey was kidnapped. She can't remember anything from the five months before. She's trying not of think too much of it. She just wants to be normal again, without everyone pointing and staring at her. But this voice in her head keeps urging her that she's wrong. Something about angels, but angels aren't real, are they? No, they can't be.

When Nora gets caught up with some stranger, she can't help but feel as if she already knows him. Yet, he continually denies that he's even seen her before. With this problem with this stranger, her dad is also seemingly alive. How can he be alive? Did he fake his death?

The next book in this series is called Finale.

Something I really liked about this book is that it was really suspenseful and not too much was revealed at a time.

There really isn't much that I don't like about this book.

I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars. Image result for 5 stars
