I mostly post reviews of the books I'm reading lately.
When Jacob's grandfather dies, Jacob is only left with memories of the stories he was told as a child, some photographs and his grandfather's mysterious last words. It seems the shock of what he saw is too great, so he is sent off to a pyschiatrist and then to a Welsh island, where his grandfather lived and where the photographs were taken. What he finds there surpasses even his wildest dreams.
The book was fantastic. It's a little bit too dark to be entirely YA, but it does center around teenagers. The images upset me, so that I couldn't read it by night (I'm easily scared), but when I picked it up in daylight I just couldn't put it down. It's creepy, just slightly on the verge of horror, and the end is action-packed. Definitely a change of pace from what I've been reading lately! Very enjoyable (though probably, for me, it would have been better without the pictures).
