Book Description: Book 2 in the Blue House Trilogy
*No formal summary provided for this book. This book is a continuation of the series and details the next adventures and challenges the Blue House children face.
Captivation: I really enjoyed the second book of the series. I had to know what happened to the main and the supporting characters. A truly intriguing series for teenagers and all adult ages!
Imagination: I really like Bell’s ability to write and tell a story and pull the reader into it and make it very realistic and relatable. The theological and philosophical view presented in the series provides a great combination of drama, mystery, and sweet teenager semi-innocence.
Unique: Bell writes a great unique view of an after-life potential in this book. It runs along similar lines as the first therefore doesn’t present a great deal of new mystery though there is a bit of newness.
Enjoyment: I like this book quite a bit, though not as much as the first. The book was enjoyable but presented more information than mystery and intrigue for me.
Literacy: I found a few editorial errors in this book. Simple errors that would not be identified via be a standard view check but should have been identified with a standard editing check. There were more errors in this book then I noticed in the first. It did become distracting at times.
Overall, I like this book, though not as much as the first, it is a good, informative continuation for the series and provides good insight into the development of the various characters.
