Gloom Town

We rated this book:


Gloom Town is a bit scary. I didn’t think I would be able to read the whole thing because it was creepy, but I kept going and finished it! (I am a nine-year-old girl for reference) I thought the beginning kind of drug on and seemed weird to me. I think a middle school kid would really like this book. I did not like the part where Lord Foxglove tries to murder Rory! I liked the details but I think it was a bit too dramatic to the point where it wasn’t believable. I like that Rory tries to help his mother earn some money. It added a soft touch to the overall quality of the book. I did really like the ending though. All in all, I have come to the conclusion that this is a great book and it would be appropriate for a middle school age and above.
