Review: LUNA PARK by Heather Blackwood

An ancient amusement park: something seems off about it. But what could be so scary about it?

Astrid has a terrible home life, living with a mother that constantly abuses her. Her only hope is to wait til she graduates, save enough money, and head to New York for college. Astrid and her cousin, Elliot, are two kids struggling to get by, working long hours at Luna Park.

What’s up with Yukiko and something stealing her spirit ball? What the hell is a spirit ball? She’s not human? Kitsunes? Myobu? I was just confused about Yukiko and Santiago. I wanted to hear more about Astrid and Elliot. And what was all this about Princess Red Fawn giving Astrid white packets of salt? Weird.

This could’ve been an interesting horror mystery, but, overall, it was just too weird and too slow to get to the meat of the plot—the point of it all.

My rating: 2.5 stars
