I spotted this book on another blogger’s blog and really liked their review. I wanted to try it out. Thankfully Netgalley still had it up so I clicked request. And here we are.
I know that as I kid was terrified of the dark, now I can say that I am still not comfortable in the dark, but much better than when I was a kid. I was curious to see how Jade would brave the dark and see how she would get through the night.
It all begins when mom gives her a goodnight kiss, then the dark settles in and poor Jade sees all sorts of creepy things in the dark and her mind totally spins out of control. Poor Jade, I definitely know that feeling. Shadows in the dark do the strangest things. And I can understand not being able to sleep, because who knows what may be lurking.
Then comes something wonderful, something shiny, and I was so happy for Jade. However I am wondering if Jade truly braved the dark, since that one thing won’t be there always. But maybe she now knows that there will always be something looking out for her? It did feel a bit incomplete in my opinion and I also didn’t think it was truly braving it. I had thought she would be going out of bed and confront her fears. Found out that there was nothing scary in her room.
I did like the art, it was quite cute.
All in all, a book that could have been better, but that I still enjoyed.
