Cassie and her best friend, Laney, are intrigued by the mysterious and enjoy ghost hunting at the Gray Lady Cemetery. A dark carnival comes to town bringing with it enticing characters who immediately lure the teens. Cassie is suspicious and can't figure out if the carnies are men or boys. Laney doesn't care and falls head over heels into the promise of adventure and danger. When the same shady characters from the carnival show up as newly enrolled students at the high school soon after, Cassie and Laney's friendship begins to unravel. Even worse, Cassie feels like her mind is unraveling. She hears voices—voices from the trees. Either Cassie is going crazy or something is very, very wrong.
Cassie must uncover the mystery of where the men have come from and why they want her friends. Not only does her sanity depend on it, but so does Laney's life.
E.M Fitch has rekindled dark romanticism with Of the Trees the way Stephanie Meyers breathed seduction back into gothic romance with Twilight. Whether you’re 15 or 35, trust me, you’ll want to read this.
EM Fitch wrote another book that had me on the edge of my seat,
Her descriptions of events will be hard to defeat.
It's not zombies in this one but real kids and their school,
From drinking and partying because some think that it's cool.
A suspenseful storyline she leaves in your mind,
Who knows what those trees in the woods leave behind.
It starts off with two girls and one's obsession with the dead,
Going out late at night when they should be in bed!
In this town, The cemetery is quite the place to be,
And quickly I learned there was so much to see.
This cemetery is quite a big deal,
It's hard to imagine what's fake and what's real.
The book is not the story of the Green Lady in the cemetery,
But the lives of some kids and it gets kinda scary!
The book talks of fall carnivals and high school dances,
Young girls and old guys now taking some chances.
Drinks in their hands and girls who are buzzin'
Loud music and dancin kids, there must be a dozen.
It's in these trees where tragic events occur,
For some characters, their homecoming night is a blur.
The book starts off at a slightly slow pace,
But then characters come in: some leather, some lace.
The kids in the book all have their own story,
They come and they go and only few get the glory.
Fitch has parents losing kids and friends losing friend,
All while, some teenagers life finds her tragic end.
Best friends partying way too hard on that night,
And it ends with some friends getting into a fight.
She leaves us open for thinking at the end of the book,
I couldn't believe it was over, I took a second look!
The one who went missing that night; friend or a foe?
I hope there's a sequel so we will all know!
Cassie's other best friend, Ryan, is the only person who makes her feel safe. While Laney is being pulled into something that makes Cassie's skin crawl she seeks comfort with Ryan. Things are getting worse when people Cassie knows are being killed. There aren't any leads and Cassie has a lot of useful information to give to the police, but they don't take her seriously. Cassie might lose everything she holds dear. She fears for Laney's life, will she be able to get her friend back and save her or is it too late for Laney?
Cassie is a sweet girl. She cares about her friends, she's always looking out for them and she tries to keep them safe. When terrifying things start happening in her hometown she can see, feel and hear the danger, but she can't keep it away from the people she loves. Both Cassie and Ryan are generous and kind people and I kept hoping they wouldn't get in trouble. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out if they'd survive the frightening situation they're in. Laney seems to be at the center of it and she keeps pulling away from Cassie more and more. She's adventurous and a little bit self-centered and I kept hoping she wouldn't drag Cassie into whatever is happening to her. This kept me on the edge of my seat and I absolutely loved that.
Of The Trees is a fantastic creepy story. I liked how uneasy E.M. Fitch made me feel while I was reading her story. Something isn't right, but it isn't clear what it is and that gave me the chills. I had a lot of questions while reading the story and couldn't wait to find out more details about what's happening in Cassie's town. Being in a dark forest is incredibly spooky, especially when evil is lurking in the shadows. E.M. Fitch's vivid descriptions of the danger Cassie is in are fantastic and they genuinely spooked me. I loved this amazing eerie story.
