School going years, especially middle and high school years, are the most memorable of my life. Though not so much when I have received punishments. Those times I have blotted out. Dread Wood by Jennifer Killick took me right back to those times – especially making friendships unexpectedly!
Dread Wood is a tale of how four students have to go to school on a Saturday to face detention. With their phones taken away, they are stranded in the school grounds with their own company. And the horrors that surround them. One after the other Hallie, Naira, Gustav and Angelo face horrors that have gotten from bad to worse together. And together they overcome this.
Jennifer Killick is good at her craft. The book’s plot is well thought of and excellently written. This makes Dread Wood an engaging read. It had me hooked from the get go! The pace, the suspense, the thrill … everything was very well formulated and the reader can get carried with the flow. The best part however are the four main characters and how they go from four random classmates to become a team. It is an experience the reader can rejoice in as they become a part of that gang.
