Reviews - What do customers think about Sling Creek?
Hard-to-put-down adventure Feb 19, 2010
Sling Creek has the nostalgic goodness of Tom Sawyer and the adventurous intrigue of the Hardy boys. You will want to stick with the story to find out how the murder mystery ends. I liked it because it gave me a good sense of what small-town Southern life was like in the mid 1940s. I think you will find it an uplifting read for young and old alike.
Fantastic book Jan 12, 2010
I loved the book. It kept both myself and the kids on the edge of our seats. We have three kids (13 years, 11 years, and 8 years old) and they all enjoyed it. My two older boys were especially attracted to the plot and action. We loved the scene where grandmother cleared the fence in a single bound....(you'll have to read it to see). We laughed until we cried.
Highly recommend this book to all readers who enjoy good clean adventures.
