Whitby After Dark Book Cover

Lenore Lee is a troubled, young girl.  She endures abuse.  As her family has yet again moved to a new place, she opens this tale ready to meet her new school mates.  This progress rapidly from there.  The story proves a very short read that even finds enough room to end with some poetry.

I was stymied by noticeable errors right from the start.  There were even inconsistencies and over-usage of italics.  It made things confusing in some parts but not enough to severely hamper.  What I found more of a challenge was how swiftly things moved and even how oddly characters seemed to act.

The story is an interesting one, charming, positive, and not entirely unlike a fairy tale.  The subject matter at its core is very serious.  The presentation, though, is not.  I felt that the brevity of the novel (55 pages) swept everything through too quickly and neatly.  Things felt to resolve so fast that I wondered that everyone hadn’t already gone through this before, such was their seeming preparedness, adaption, and even sudden ability.  The reader is subject to revelations at a rapid fire pace, and I, for one, was left wanting to know more.
