Fifteen-year-old Tess O’Brien finds her life inexplicably intertwined with the rebellious teen Cain Mathews and the conflicted Wesley Thayer as they search the vast Wisconsin woodlands for a mystical albino deer herd.

An ominous curse, a mysterious fog and villainous poachers plague their journeys as the three struggle to come to terms with their lives, their parents and the wilderness they love.

“Ghosts of Manitowish Waters “is a coming of age story about finding your own path and following it. It’s a lesson in knowing when to obey your parents and when to have the courage to defy them.




I managed to reach chapter eight on my second read and after I saw that I couldn’t go on, I stopped.

I loved the simple cover, the wonderful reviews and the blurb. I thought that this book could be great, but it fell short (for me). At first I thought it was because I had a lot on my mind so I read it again, but then I knew that this book is just not for me.

For me the characters were boring and plot didn’t made me want to turn the page and read more. If I stop caring about what’s going to happen next, then for me it’s time to stop reading (sorry).

Said that, if you think you might like the story after reading the blurb and the reviews, I say… go for it, as you might like it a lot but for me… Well, we didn’t click.

You can also read this review at Goodreads and Amazon.

Other Stuff

Opening Line: “The screen door banged shut loudly behind her, but Tess O’Brien didn’t pay it any attention.”

Final Thoughts: I loved the idea of the book, but it’s just not for me.

I am an avid reader, coffee addict, a writer and a blogger. I am a bit of agoraphobic (people scare me, lol). Me and my hubby love to spend every moment together, we even game together.

I live mostly in my own imaginary world full of dragons, magic and vampires and from time to time I pull myself away to deal with the real world.
