Only The Shadow Knows-Teens Are People Too


Rita Morse and the Sinister Shadow by Holly Hook

I recently read Rita Morse and the Sinister Shadow by Holly Hook. It was quite an interesting read with the main character being a female. This book gives young girls a chance to be whisked into a town controlled by shadow people. These shadow people feel that teens should be seen and not heard. So it is up to Rita and her two best friends to put an end to this madness.

This war on teens by A. Gist, the leader of the shadow people, was trying to get all teens put in their place. Yet, Rita Morse, a strong willed heroin, would not let that happen. She battled with her friends to defeat the evil A. Gist.

Rita Morse and the Sinister Shadow has a great ending with optimistic opportunity for a sequel. I would give this book 3 stars. It starts out with a bang and then has a few slow spots in the middle, but picks up at the end. My teenage daughter enjoyed reading this book along with me.

About Tiffany Turner

I am a teacher by day, writer during the evening and weekends. I've written a children's fantasy series called the Crystal Keeper Chronicles. I've learned a lot as an Independent author. I want to share that now through blog posts, interviewing fellow authors, and reviewing other children's books. If you don't see it out there, build the blog yourself. I'm hoping to create a resource for people to find quality children's books that don't always fall along the lines of mainstream.
