A Heartwarming Thriller
The Perfect Tree is one of those books that can be classified in several genres – young adult fiction, adult fiction and even mystery. The adventures of Blake and Greta kept me interested from the start, and I anxiously anticipated what waited around the corner for them. The twists caught me off guard every time, and there was no way to anticipate the shocking end.
A Compelling Read
I can recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of coming-of-age stories. The influences are clear (To Kill a Mockingbird, even The Body (or Stand By Me) by Stephen King to a degree,) but the story is one all its own. The characters come to life as the story progresses and stick with you long after.
