"Laura Marlin we are coming for you...
It was the last thing I saw before everything went black."
Laura Marlin is relaxing on the Australian coast when strange things start happening all around her. I really liked this book because it was full of secrets and it had bits where I could use my imagination. My favourite bit was when Laura dipped her feet into the supernatural creek and they glowed bright blue! I also liked the part when she was told that she was the 'feather foot' (special detective).
The scariest part was when she thought she saw a joker on the mirror in the girls bathroom.
I learnt from reading this book that some types of Hawk can cause forest fires in Australia, because they snatch up little twigs that are burning and drop them into the forest to make small animals come into the clearing... and then they eat them!
I'd recommend this book to all people who like thrillers.
