Wow! Here's another spectacular book I've read lately!
The Trojan Horse Traitor is about Levi, a boy who gets sent to a camp on an
isolated island for the entire Summer, and must deal with bullies.
But if you were to move J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis to twenty-first century America and put them in that camp they might have been able to write something like this book.
Levi and his new friends must deal with hard work, strict staff, and nasty kids, but also magic and demons.
The plot is full of surprises and Levi learns things he never knew about himself.
While the book is listed for New Adults, it doesn't involve much romance, so younger kids would enjoy it if they can cope with the scary stuff. And, hey, that's what makes fiction appealing, isn't it?
When I first opened the book I intended only to read a few pages at that time, but it was so exciting I had to finish the whole thing.
Amy C. Blake is a wonderful writer and I hope to see more books by her in the future.
