Arlo Finch in the Kingdom of Shadows
An amazing story about a boy trying to bring his family back together. Arlo lives in Pine Mountain with his mother, and his father lives in China. Arlo is determined to bring his father home, so he and two of his friends travel through the long woods to reach him. When they return to Pine Mountain, they discover that Hadryn is back and he wants Arlo’s spirit knife. Arlo knows that Hadryn has an evil plan, so he won’t give him the knife. He later finds that the Eldritch, beings from another realm, are hunting Hadryn. Soon, Arlo is forced to make a choice that will change his life forever. Arlo Finch and the Kingdom of Shadows is very well written. I really liked the idea of the Long Woods, which is a dimension that connects all wild places. There are many interesting places in the Long Woods, and there are also many spirits. I would recommend this book to kids from fifth to eighth grade, and to kids who like adventure. If you want a great adventure story, you need to read this book.
