The Missing SeasonWhenever another kid goes missing in October the Pender kids know what is really behind it a horrific monster out in the marshes they have named the MumblerThat’s what Clara’s new crew tells her when she moves to town Bree and Sage NOW AVAILABLEthis is the first book i have read by gillian french so i don’t know how this one stacks up to her other ones but i knew she was a pretty popular YA author i saw a free ARC i loved the cover and i grabbed it with my sticky froggy hands this is YA written for the younger side of the YA curve and there ain’t nothing wrong with that but most of the YA i’ve read seems to be aiming for that juicy YAadult crossover demographic so the difference is something i noticed when i was reading it on the one hand that makes it an easy breezy read but on the other hand i was missing the depth and richness folks like patrick ness and laini taylor and melina marchetta bring to the YA tableeverything about this is fine the characters are appealing the atmosphere is developed into a fine weave of horror and realism halloween slendermannish spookiness in one strand and uirky new girlfriendshipenigmatic boy crush in the other even the descriptions workI swear I’ve been here before Not Birchwood Terraces exactly but other developments like it named after the trees cut down to build the place Oakfield Elm Park Spruce Way We’ve moved three times in four years and twice when I was in elementary school following Dad’s construction work but somehow we always end up right herei know this girl i know this place and i appreciate that the characters are children of lower middle classworking poor families which novelists so freuently turn into stereotypes but here read like real people real circumstances discrete personalities and home lives all of that is fine i was really enjoying seeing where it was going enjoying the journey towards the ‘is it or isn’t it?’ of the supernaturalhuman reveal and then it got thereand wowthis book is like waiting for marriage to lose your virginity  you spend so much time anticipating what’s going to come and then it’s over and you wonder if it was all really worth waiting for i’m not sure if this analogy holds water but unlike marriage i’ve committed to it so here we are again i have the ARC so page numbers may differ come pub day but after 280 pages we come to the big reveal the big showdown and it lasts NINE PAGES nine pages and that’s me rounding up the half pages it’s actually only seven which is a truly unsatisfying roll in the hay by my standards so was it worth it? for me not really it’s an out of left field answer to a uestion built up into a lot than it turned out to be and it doesn’t even make sense if the why is the why then the hazel thing makes no sense at all none so yeah for me this one didn’t work i liked enough of it to give french another shot considering the high marks her other books have gotten ‘round here but this one did not stick its landing which pretty much tainted whatever steps in our courtship i’d enjoyed before we commenced our regrettable wedding night sorry booknerds i didn't love this 3 stars rounded upreview TKcome to my blog
