BBW, spiderwick
Trying to finish reading my BBW haul.

spiderwick, holly, tony

I liked this book more than the third book. The actions and adventure were way better compared to Lucinda's Secret, in my opinion. Unlike Lucinda's secret, I wasn't snoring while reading this book, so well, that's something to say.

The book starts when the siblings are on their way to school for Mallory's fencing meet. And strange things started to happen during the meet. Jared found a boy who is exactly the carbon copy of him and Simon, and the mystery started to unravel from there.

They found old quarry place that is a home for dwarves. A community of dwarves with crafting prowess. I liked the way the dwarves place is described.

I liked Simon. He's a good brother. He is a funny, clueless (sometime) and smart kid.

It was a quick good read.

4/5 stars.

May peace be upon you ;)
