    At the library this was classed as a teen book although I feel it easily could've been counted as a child's book due to the nature of the book Still the book was very entertaining and I did enjoy it The storyline was very simplistic and there was a lack of character development in the story of new characters I struggled with the friendship between Maddy and Hannah as they were strangers first then in the next chapter they were best friends I felt it was aimed at a younger age group than me 16 as the characters were all between the ages of 7 12 so I struggled to connect to the characters and empathise with them Overall it was an enjoyable story and I finished it one day

    This book was set in a boarding school and the main character is able to see ghosts I found the story to be very fast paced and I read it very uickly At times I found the story a bit confusing and I wasn't too sure what was happening The descriptions were really detailed and it was easy to picture the setting and the characters I really liked all of the characters especially the main character Maddy She seemed very mature for her age and handled all the situations she was put in really well

    The Crowham Martyrs by Jane McLoughlinStoryI was incredibly surprised by how this storyline progressed throughout the book Even though I have never read a book that was based primarily around ghosts I still had very low expectations This was only because I have previously read books about fallen angels and zombies before and did not enjoy them to a standard that I expected to I went into this book with low expectations as ghosts are something children talk about which would mean I wouldn’t find it intriguing enough I read the first sentence of this book and was instantly pleasantly surprised It did something every book should do but not enough books actually do and made me really want to read on The firs t chapter was brilliantly set out I knew the characters name and what she looks like and a little bit about her life I had also been described the area around her which immediately made it easy to imagine Instantly we had some form of foreshadowing which worked very well and also a few rhetorical uestions At page 15 I had written ‘intriguing’ on my notes which meant that from then on my low expectations had evaporated Looking back on the first dreamflashback we have I realised that slowly as you read on you are actually given many hints about what’s going that you realise and that’s incredibly cleverThe amount of plot twists in this book was crazy and I can recall myself gasping out loud a couple of times and writing down such things as ‘woah’ ‘omg’ and ‘what even?’ all because I was so shocked The ending was a blur for me because I just flew through the pages with interest not being able to wait to find out what happens nextWritingThe writing was amazing It was gripping and easy to understand but the descriptions within the book were what made the book so engrossing The descriptions of the characters the scene and what the characters were doing were so detailed it made the story so easy to imagine in my head The amount of plot twists would normally be a little too much but the way they were placed was really clever and the way that throughout the book not too much was given away so when we thought we new everything there was another mystery that had to be unravelled CharactersMaddyShe was a great character to read about and not once did I get bored of being inside of her head She wasn’t immature in any of the situations she was put in and I probably would have done everything she did exactly the same if I was in her positionHannahShe was my favourite female character and I loved how she spoke and how she first approached Maddy during the beginning of the book I was devastated when she ‘disappeared’ and I loved how her and Maddy interacted with each other CalebHe was 100% my favourite character this is because of how mysterious he was and how everyone knew he was hiding something I knew there was something about him that would be cleared up by the end of the story and the fact that I was so excited to find out what it was just made me happy to see him turn up in a chapter or something As soon as he walked in and flashed his curls I knew I trusted himOverallThis story was a million times better than I expected and that’s always a good feeling The writing was amazing and the plot was so well planned out The characters all had an important part in the story and they all grew with the book as we found out about them and their history

    I love YA horror books and The Crowham Martyrs has many of the classic winning factors of any horror novel1 Seriously creepy old haunted building in this case a boarding school even better2 Scary woods3 Small close knit village with secrets and a dark past and residents who are not uite what they seem as the nearest populated place4 History stuffsMaddy Deeprose isn't scared of ghosts she's seen them all her life So she's not scared by the sheer number of ghosts who populate her boarding school in Sussex Crowham MartyrsShe starts to get scared however when she experiences a series of eerie horrific 'visions' of the past which seem to be linked to the history of the school building which dates back to the time when so called witches were burnt at the stake As she begins to uncover the past of the building and nearby village creepy things happen Why is everyone so afraid of the local woods? What are the mysterious scratch marks etched into the buildings of the village? Why is there a hidden room full of ancient books written in weird languages hidden in the depths of her school? Why are the teachers who are supposed to protect her suddenly acting so strange around her? The Crowham Martyrs was very creepy and the author does a great job of building an atmosphere and slowly slowly revealing the true story of just what's going on I did get a little annoyed by Maddy constantly running away from things and people but this actually worked as part of the story adding to the feeling of fear and suspicion and also it becomes part of Maddy's growth as a character The people and things she runs away from are either scary or untrustworthy so I can understand why she does run from them But at times I was thinking 'FFS girl if you want to know what's going on stop running away from the people who try to tell you the truth'Very good read overall If you like good old fashioned creepy chills and thrills read this

    Do i believe in ghosts? i don't know but i do love a good ghost story From a young age i loved watching TV programmes like Most Haunted and also being born on Halloween i also truly believed i was a witch WHEN I WAS LITTLE OK So when i got the chance to read a book that has ghosts in i was excited I like to see peoples different perspectives on ghost's and how they involve them into the story Plus i love a good boarding school storyThis book is about a young girl called Maddy Deeprose who can see ghosts she has always seen ghosts and they never really bother her too much Maddy only lives with her mother who decides to send her to a boarding school During her time at Crowham Martys Maddy is not alone in thinking it is a creepy place but she gets on with life until her friends start to disappear weird things are happening around her and everyone seems to be keeping a secret from her Something evil is at Crowham Martys and Maddy seems to be in the middle of itOne thing i liked about the book is when you get to the end and find out everything you need to know you think back over what you have read and realise that you have been getting clues all along It was very clever in the way this was done and makes me want to read the book again Just so i can pick up all the clues again I also liked how the book made you feel nothing was reviled straight away and therefore you it makes you creeped out tooThe only negative about this book is that i felt the beginning of the book needed a little personalhistory explanation but that is of something i personally like

    I love Catnip books They publish some really unexpected gems and as a conseuence I am always excited about reading anything they send me pretty much the moment it drops through my letterbox This book is no exception I started it knowing it was set in a boarding school and had ghosts in it and that was enough for me to want to read it I love a good boarding school story at the best of times and this sounded like it had an edge and boy I wasn't wrong about the edge This book is seriously creepy The kind of creepy that comes back and plays in your mind long after you've finished it and gives you creepy nightmares I'm not really one for getting freaked out about books but this did it For me the main character Maddy drove this book You warm to her from the outset and you find yourself draw into this incredibly odd situation she is in and feel her frustrations at all those people around her who don't believe what she is saying about all the weirdness around her I loved that the story was suspenseful and kept me guessing to the point where I was reluctant to put it down because I needed to know what happened next All in all superb read which I can thoroughly recommend

    The Crowham Martyrs is an amazing fantasy read by Jane McLoughlin The adventure seems never ending and I love how the author interprets the ghosts as not frightening or menacing but as Maddy's guardsprotectors The fact that there is an element of mystery and the presence of the unknown draws you into the book and the blurb is uite attractive Before I had read the book I thought that people would disappear than there actually did but that doesn't make the book 'bad' I was disappointed that it finished as uick as it did but I suppose that that was because previously I have read 'Sophie's World' which is uite a long book with lots of text Now I can proceed to read the rest of the Essex Book Awards books I rate The Crowham Martyrs 910

    A fantastic twist on the boarding school mystery that seems to flooding the pre teen marlet at the moment Sufficiently scary without having anything which would cause me concern as a parent it's a brilliantly well written spooky mystery a perfect october read

  10. Emma Emma says:

    A touch bizarre and at times illogical but enjoyable nonetheless because of it's weirdness and easy going prose Worth reading if you like a bit of mysterious witchy mayhem
