Deep and Dark and Dangerous, written by Mary Downing Hahn, is a book that is over-flowed with mystery, drama, terror, and much more. If you like hearing mysterious stories, this book is the perfect match for you!
This book is about a thirteen year-old girl named Ali who finds an old photograph of three people. Two of them are her mother and aunt Dulcie, but the other person is ripped out of the picture. Ali tries to find out who the missing person is. She then decides to go off on vacation with her aunt and cousin. But she meets a mean and rude girl named Sissy, who starts to ruin her vacation. She sometimes appears out of no where and sometimes she comes back in a flash. No one knows who she is and no one knows where she comes from.
When I read this book, it gave me goose bumps from how mysterious and dramatic it becomes. But it caused me to keep reading more and more. What happens in this book is always very unexpected, which most people love.
I recommend this book to anyone that is older than the age of 10, since it is an easy read but entertaining at the same time.
This book literally goes down deep, dark, and dangerous!
