This a horror story without much horror. The hauntings are strictly pro forma, as are the obligatory abusive parents and school bullies. "Black Creek Crossing" has few original story elements, and even the spirit-infested house has few descriptions worthy of even a tingle.
The two teenaged protagonists are your typical picked-on outcasts who spend most of the book being tormented alternately at school and at home, until they discover witchcraft and start dishing out payback. The rest of the story proceeds in utterly predictable fashion.
No thrills, no chills, and it was hard to feel sorry for any of the characters. The ending was straight out of any Hollywood made-for-sequels horror movie. I can't recommend this book unless you're looking for a lightweight and completely forgettable horror novel.
