Book Review #136
Trouble by Gary D. Schmidt
Rating: three stars (out of four)
There were several aspects of this book that I thought were really intriguing. I wanted to know what would happen next and how everything would work out at the end. I did like the plot twists that were scattered throughout the book. The characters were pretty interesting as well, I saw them as real people and felt for them through their troubles. I can only complain about a couple of things. I didn't think that this book was as well-written or liked as some of the other Gary D. Schmidt books I have read in the past. I wasn't totally in love with it or anything. And the ending was a bit of a let down. I wasn't too impressed and kind of wished that it had been wrapped up better. Yet, I still really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
