#Book #Review: 4 out of 5 stars for The World More Full of Weeping by Robert J. Wiersema @robertjwiersema @chizinepub

Eleven-year-old Brian Page spends every waking moment in the forest behind the house where he lives with his father. But forests are always deeper than anyone can know. Secrets are hidden in the eternal twilight of the trees. Those secrets emerge into light when Brian disappears in the forest, as his father did three decades before. His father, however, came home with no memory of the events in the depths of the forest. What has drawn Brian away? Will he emerge, shuddering and broken, as his father did, or will the forests close around him, as they have done so often before?

MY REVIEW:

This creepy little tale had me wishing that the book was longer!

Brian is 11 years old and lives with his father. He is a bit of a loner and spends a lot of time alone in the woods behind his house, until he meets a girl in there named Carly. She's dressed in a long old-fashioned dress, so he thinks that she must live at one of the nearby Dutch farms. 

Once Brian has finished the school year, he is supposed to move to his mother's house in Vancouver which is two hours away and will be starting school there in the Fall. On the day of Brian's disappearance, he has a disagreement with his dad because he doesn't want to spend the week at his mom's house. 

As a mom, this definitely struck fear in me! This is my second read from this author (I absolutely loved his debut, Before I Wake), and I can't wait to read more from him.

MY RATING:

4 stars!! It was really good, and you should put it on your TBR if you enjoy horror or fantasy!

This book qualifies as:
