Snippet: "I swear to you Karla, that blade went right into his back."
Summary: Brent Nichol, 16, often hears screaming in his head. When he goes to stay with his secretive grandfather and finds an old trunk in a lake, he discovers the terrifying source of the screaming.
Review: What started out as a really interesting read slowly petered out into a very fast-moving but boring story. From the cover and the summary I thought this would be a really creepy story that would have me on the edge of my seat but no.
I struggled to finish it to be honest because the ending was so rushed I felt like I missed a whole chunk. I think the story should've been longer and offered more of an explanation.
Unfortunately I can't think of much to say about this book thats positive. I was just slightly disappointed with The Screaming Tree.
All I can say is, it's a shame because the book did have a lot of potential.
