Dunny knew from an early age what it meant to be an outsider. Her special abilities earned her many names, like freak and water witch. So she vowed to keep her powers a secret. But now her talents may be the only hope of two missing children. A young boy and girl have vanished, feared lost in the mysterious bayous of Louisiana. But they didn't just disappear; they were taken. And amid the ghosts and spirits of the swamp, there is a danger worse than any other, one with very special plans for the children -- and for anyone who dares to interfere.

When I first started reading this book I was a little skeptical, mainly because it did not seem like the type of book that I normally read. However as I started I found myself so captured by how well written this book is, and how different it is from anything I have ever read. The characters are something that stood out to me the most, especially Poochie. The characters are of southern dialect and Leblanc capture everything from the way they talk to their description perfectly! Leblanc also painted a great picture of the scenery of Louisiana that I felt I was actually there.

The story line was very interesting to me because it was fresh and suspenseful, I was constantly on the edge of my seat. Also the layout that Leblanc choose to use with different characters narrating was a great addition to the plot. This story was about Dunny who has a special gift of being able to find things, which she does not normally share with others. However her sister needed her help in Louisianna to locate 2 children who have gone missing. When Dunny arives in Louisianna she finds out that the children missing are just one aspect of the story. Thus begins a thrilling tale full of advenutre and horror! This book was a different type of book for me usually I read young adult however I was glad to have read this!

You can find the book here:
Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble

Happy Reading!

The Hunger Games
By: Suzanne Collins
In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. But Katniss has been close to dead before-and survival.

So What did You Get?
