Mary Downing Hahn does a good job of introducing some scariness without actually frightening the readers who would read her book. There was just enough suspense, just enough scariness and a bit of humor mixed in. The character of Arthur brought most of the humor.
I liked him. He was that type of character that was quirky enough to be endearing but also slightly annoying. I didn’t know whether to dislike him or become his friend, which is what the main protagonist Logan felt. The main plot of the story was interesting enough, but I think it was the awkward friendship of Logan and Arthur that made the story. They had an interesting dynamic that worked.
