I found my mind wandering while I was reading this book. I felt the pace was a little slow at times but it eventually picked up. Overall, it was an enjoyable story.

I really really like this. Love it.

World building? Okay.
Characters? Okay in enough portion.
Mystery? Really good.

Bermula saat Crane Family move to Lost Lake, ans Fiona feels gloomy all day. Imagine, as 12 y.o, who really awkward and kinda hard to make a friends, and when finally she have it, she must move to another region (memang tidak terlalu jauh) just the intensity of their meetings is getting less and less and can only be through social media and playing games of course. Lalu, semakin diperparah dengan Fiona yang merasa dia itu unimportant, unwanted, dan semacam un- lainnya. Ditambah dengan kekecewaan yang menumpuk kepada Arden yang membuat hubungan dua bersaudara ini semakin renggang.

Suatu hari, saat Mrs. Crane akan mengantar Arden ke tempat latihan skating, tentunya Fiona is tag along tapi dia ogah-ogahan, akhirnya dia minta diturunkan di perpustakaan. Nah, dari sana dan saat di ruang baca khusus buku misteri, dia menemukan buku yang menurutnya aneh dan tidak ada nama pengarangnya. Akhirnya dia baca dan she's getting hook. Into the story, saat itulah kejanggalan mulai dia rasakan. Bukunya yang tiba-tiba menghilang dari rumahnya, seperti diawasi, dsb. Kemudian dia jadi tahu Pearl dan Hazel story, adik-kakak sepertinya dan Arden, yang merupakan karakter buku yang dia baca. Karena rasa penasaran dan jiwa keingintahuan sebagai future archeolog (she want that), akhirnya dia mencari tahu informasi lebih lanjut saat tiba-tiba di tengah buku, lembar selanjutnya kosong, blank, tidak ada kelanjutannya, yang menggiring dia menemukan hal yang tidak terduga dari balik kejadian kedua anak Chisholm di masa lampau.

What I really like in this story is bagaimana Fiona belajar dan tahu ada akhirnya Arden is important person in her life. I was touched at that time.

Novel ini menggunakan bahasa yang ringan, tidak terlalu berat dan mengalir begitu saja alurnya. Dan value in this novel is really good and important in your life, especially if you have siblings. Really.

And I RECOMMENDED y'all to read this. Is fun journey.

I love the characters in these novels, they are interesting and get into the stickiest situations. I thought the ending to this book was perfect. I don't know if there are more books planned for this series but I plan on reading them if there are.
