I chose “Deep and Dark and Dangerous” (written by Mary Downing Hahn) because I felt like reading a scary story and picked this book up. The book is about a girl named Ali who finds a picture of her Aunt Dulcie and her Mother at a place called Sycamore Lake. She wanted to explore the lake for the summer.
Later on, she finds out that the lake is a place that doesn’t have the best weather, is spooky, and filled with secrets and lies. Soon, she meets a girl named Sissy. Sissy is mean, and doesn’t have a good reputation, but soon Sissy starts acting strange. She has a secret, and Ali is determined to find out what it is.
I love this book because it was as scary as I hoped. The author did a good job giving clues as well. I hope you enjoy it!
