5 Star IHIBRP Book Review: “Saving Hascal’s Horrors” by Laura Smith
A Remarkable Coming-Of-Age Horror Story With Just A Touch Of Magic!
10-year old Mike Hascal loves horror movies, and it just so happens that his family owns a horror-themed shop—Hascal’s Horrors. Before his Dad’s death, the shop held a contest to see who could take a photograph of a real live ghost. Two teen boys entered the forest, where the ghost was purported to be, but only one returned. Will the ghost of Shawn MacKay seek revenge on Mike and his friends who are now out searching the woods for his body?
This story has turned out to be one of my all-time favorite preteen/teen reads! Smith touches on all the classic hallmarks of middle-school life as her characters deal with peer pressure, bullying, food fights, puppy love, and everything in between. Her main character, Mike, is an average 10-year-old, wondering about the usual things that 10-year-old boys wonder about. He’s an endearing character that shows a good deal of soul and dimension as he learns that you can’t judge everyone can by first appearances and their initial behavior.
“Saving Hascal’s Horrors” is a remarkable coming-of-age/horror story with just a small touch of magic. The tale is quite reminiscent of the popular cult movie “The Goonies”, and it and will likewise take readers along on a grand and noble quest, treating the macabre with wonder and humor as it appeals to the curiosity of preteens and the young-at-heart everywhere.
Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at AuthorJBRichards.com under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
