Story Time Book Review

Story Time Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

Looking for a good ghost story? Find out if the haunted school in Story Time is worth reading about!

Author: Edward Bloor

Kate is an ordinary 13 year-old girl; it's her family that's insane. All she wants to do is sing in the Peter Pan play at her school and find out if Derek is interested in her. However, Kate's super-braniac 11 year-old uncle George has them both roped into going to the super-creepy Whittaker Magnet School by the even creepier Austin family who runs the place. Before she knows it, she's up to her neck in crazy teachers, stupid tests and murderous ghosts.


What Makes Story Time an A+ Haunted School Story?

Planting your nose in the pages of Story Time will get ink all over it. If you back your face up a few inches and read the story, you'll get a chance to visit a great batch of characters who are stuck in a school that makes them take tests all day long. What's great is that Story Time really comes to life with lots of interesting details and some really fun moments. Plus, the school is totally creepy - in a fun way.


Story Time Gets Failing Grades Because...

While the characters are great, Story Time loses marks because it takes a while to get into the story. Things don't get really interesting until you're about 100 pages in. Unfortunately, the end falls apart a bit by being a bit goofy rather than creepy.


The Bottom Line

If you're looking for a slow-paced ghost story, Story Time is a good read. It's a bit shaky in some spots, but the characters totally make up for it.

    I wake up in the morning to hear the birds chirping. I smile and get up to go down stairs. I hear a DING go off on my computer, meaning I had a new message. It was from my friend Terry. I open it. It said "Hi! Happy Saturday!". I smile as I reply "Yaayyy! It's Saturday!". I close my computer and run downstairs. I eat my granola bar as I see I have a new comment on my photo on Clickstowl. "Hahaha, dog face and long nose" it said. I roll my eyes as I shut it down and sigh. I reply "hah at least we look better." I take a walk outside as I see the streets busiling as always. I see some snickering at me as I sit down on a bench. I look at Clickstowl and see that I had an edited photo. It was me, but my face was replaced with a dog face. I see the comments and she's a tear. I knew in a few days everyone would forget about it. I was sure. MONDAY, 2016: I walk along the halls as everyone laughs at me and mimicked a dog as they looked at me. (TO BE CONTINUED)
