There’s something evil in Deadwood Park.

Martin Cruz hates his rotten new town. Then he gets a message from a tree telling him it’s cursed — and so is he. It’s not just any tree. It’s the Spirit Tree, the ancient beech the high school football team carves to commemorate the home opener. And every year they lose.

But the curse is no game, and it gets worse. Businesses fail. Trees topple like dominos. Sinkholes open up in the streets, swallowing cars and buildings. Even people begin to fade, drained of life.

Martin teams up with know-it-all soccer star Hannah Vaughan. Together they must heal the tree, or be stuck in Deadwood Park at the mercy of the psycho who cursed it.

My Review:

Deadwood is a great book I feel for kids, it has a lot of stuff I think they would enjoy. It has mystery, magic and friendship. Reading it as an adult I had a few issues with the flow of the story. I sort of went all over the place and sometimes repeated the same stuff over again. I figured out the who did it part, close to the end, but I thought it was interesting. This isn’t a very long book so it’s a good story with cute characters. I did think Hannah was trying to be something she wasn’t and that sort of bothered me at times. The tree part of the book was informative and very different. I also thought when the story was ended it was wrapped up really nice with a cute happy ending.

I feel like this would be a great book for kids to enjoy but as an adult it might be a fun book to read. I would totally recommend to Middle Grade looking for something fun, quick and different.


Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my review

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I like the cover with this big tree on it and how it seems to fit the blurb and the story. It sounds like an original plot. I am sorry to hear you had some issues with the flow of the story and how the girl tried to be someone she isn’t, I am not a fan of characters who do that either. The endign does sound good. Great review!
