Young Adult Mystery

I think my expectations for this book were a little high. I picked it up thinking it'd be a great young adult horror book, but it really wasn't scary at all. And the storyline wasn't all that original. Luckily the originality of the idea of incorporating the vintage photographs was a good distraction from the lack of interest in the story. I did enjoy the descriptions of the Welsh island, though. I think this would make a great movie, but I hope Tim Burton doesn't wind up doing it if only for his refusal to use real-life locations. You would lose so much of this story by not filming it on an actual Welsh island. In any case, it looks like the author's setting up to make this into a series, but I don't know if I'd be into it enough to continue reading. We'll see....
