The Darkdeep; Ally Condie

The Darkdeep (The Darkdeep, #1)The Darkdeep by Ally Condie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Set on the coast of Washington State, Timber is a small town on the downswing, in part thanks to Nico's father's saving owls and the mill laying off workers as a result. There's also the mysterious Still Cove, permanently covered by clouds and known as a place Not To Go. So when Nico and his friends end up there, finding an odd houseboat with a basement, readers know that something is going to happen that can't be good, right? There are familiar themes here, and yet it feels very fresh. Some other reviews are saying this is similar to Stranger Things but I've never see that so I can't make that comparison. What I can say is that this might be a bit darker than younger readers can handle, but those in grades 6 and up should be fine.
