Teen Book Review

Project 17 by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Rating 4

Reviewed by Jennifer, grade 12

The basic plot of the book is 6 teens stay overnight in an abandoned assylum to film a documentary.   Rumor has it the place is haunted...  The story is told in first person alternating narrators; each of the main characters teels part of the story.  It does have a creepy feel, and while it ends alright, it isn't a true "happy" ending.  More like real life, it all work sout, but they don't all "live happily ever after".  One thing  I did not like was the language.  There was frequent cussing, which I found unnecessary.   Other than that, overall it was a good book.  But don't read it in the dark.  (You won't be able to see the pages.)
