Dark Ride by Caroline Green

For Review: Caroline Green
Published: 1 May 2011

From Goodreads: A mysterious boy. A haunting secret ...

'A shiver crawled up my spine. It felt like the loneliest place in the world. For a second
I thought I caught a snatch of music in the air, but it was just the wind whistling through cracks in the fairground hoardings.
My instincts screamed, "Run away, Bel! Run away and never return!"
But instead my fingers closed around the ticket in my pocket. ADMIT ONE.'

Bel has never met anyone like Luka. And the day she follows him into the abandoned fairground, she is totally unprepared for the turn her life is about to take.

I really liked this one. Caroline Green managed to capture my attention from the first chapter - it's fun, has great characters and an intriguing mystery.

Bel is great - she's funny and I liked how much she wanted to help Luka. I guessed what was going on with him but I loved how the mystery unfolded, and I thought the two had great chemistry. There was also some really great atmosphere in the book and there were a couple of scene where the tension truly makes this one gripping reading.

I also really liked the storyline involving Bel's father - how this affects her relationship with her mother and how she has to come to terms with what was happening to her family - I thought it really added to the story.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what Caroline Green writes next. This was a quick, but very enjoyable read.
