It's a YA mystery novel at heart. Nancy Drew with a fantasy element. But the trope of "we're just kids. The adults are never going to listen to us." (Exact quote) is overused and not fun to read.
Also, there's a point in chapter six where they have to tell the police what happened and instead of just glossing over the description the author actually gives us a blow-by-blow account of everything that's already happened. I guess maybe that's useful if you've got ADD and weren't paying attention but otherwise it's kinda boring reading the same thing over again.
I liked that the descriptions of homeschooling were well researched and interesting. And there's a pedophile character with an insidious argument that could have made this a very thought-provoking book but the author chickened out in the end and had him turn violent.
If none of that bothers you then go ahead and give it a try. The characters are well written and interesting and the plot is exciting enough to be readable. But it just wasn't for me.
