Quite honestly, I doubted that I would be able to get it read. Working full time, parenting (my second job), and blogging (which is starting to feel more like a third job than a hobby) consume almost all of my waking moments.
And yet, I devoured that book in a matter of days and I have anxiously awaited the day that I could tell everyone about it!
Now, I have read dozens and dozens of book reviews since I started blogging. They are formidable works of art and while I respect the fact that they require a ton of time and effort, generally I hate reading them.
They are too damn long.
So here it is, folks, my review:
Will O’ the Wisp is the suspenseful tale of a teenage girl who works to unravel a mystery in her hometown, a mystery linked to her father’s death. Mr. Boyack has fantastic facial hair and I have no doubt that he is a man, but he is a man who can write a teenage girl like he might have actually lived it once (I should know what that’s like). I particularly enjoyed the fact that it was set in the 1970’s. While I probably didn’t live through the seventies (at least I don’t want to admit it) I can relate to microwaves, writing letters, phone chords, and mercurochrome…
Bottom line? I loved it! Get the book. Read the book. You will NOT regret it. (Here is the Amazon link for everyone not in North America.)
