My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is pretty good but I don't really like the "horror" part of it.

Summary:

This is about a girl named Barbra Gordan. She was shot and is paralyzed from her hips down. She is admitted into a rehab facility which is pretty suspicious. She can hear voices in the walls and once patients start going missing she starts investigating.

Rating: 3.5

My rating for this book is a 3.5 because of the beginning . This book failed to get my interest at the beginning and I believe the main reason was that it was not written to be interesting at the beginning.

Summary:

This is about three high school girls who are immune to an allergy caused by black plants. These black plants took over one day after it rained and now all three of the girls are racing to try and fix the allergies from the plants.

Rating: 4 My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest for the most part and I think that is mostly because of the sci-fi aspect of the book.

Summary: Regan and Eliot are paired up in a top secret program that pertains to time travel. They both have known each other and they don't have a really strong bond. In fact, it is more hesitant and both of them look down on each other. They find out about a disaster that will ruin everything and race to save the Academy.

In the Ballroom with the Candlestick is the final book of the Clue Mystery trio. It picks up a little after the events inside In the Study with the Wrench with the Murder Crew at a now almost abandoned Blackbrook Academy. Following a series of murders from the previous books has driven most of the students away, and you are left with an closed circle mystery involving a small group of students composed of both victims and suspects.

Bad Things Happen Here is an intriguing and amazingly written YA murder mystery. It is set on an island of extremely wealthy people where horrible and unexplainable disappearances happen but the consciousness of the society sweeps it all under the rug. It is a twisted tale in both the story itself and the characters, the lead protagonist is flawed, mentally ill and haunted by loss, but yet unlike other books, this does not undermine her character, but instead strengthens Luca.
