Unexplained deaths have occurred in the tiny village of Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island, for more than half a century. Every five years, to be exact, the river claims a victim.
This year, thirteen year old Leigh Kennedy and her friends are destined to die. Can Leigh find out why this has been happening in time to escape their fate?
Unbelievers is geared toward a middle grade reader. Leigh Kennedy is only thirteen, but I did enjoy this short book. The first few pages of the prologue really enticed me to read further as it promised suspense.
Affleck has a way with words that make a scene spring to life and Leigh Kennedy, as well as her friends, seemed to be well developed and easily relatable to. If you enjoy middle grade fiction, then you will enjoy the Unbelievers. If you have a child from eight - fourteen, they would probably enjoy it as well. A great cast of characters and a suspenseful plot will keep you turning the pages.
