Blackwood

Blackwood

Living on Roanoke Island would be interesting for anyone. It is a place steeped in mystery and history due to the disappearance of 114 of the original settlers. Miranda is a misfit among her peers, affected in many ways by her ancestors who have been tied to the island and all of its curiosities. Things get even more bizarre when another massive disappearance occurs taking 114 people of today. What is the connection to the island's past? Where are the people and who is responsible? Miranda's life is complicated further as her father is one of the missing and a boy from her past returns and entwines his life and purpose with her own. This was a decent read in the paranormal historical young adult genre. However it wasn't fabulous.
