Deep and Dark and Dangerous
Mary Downing Hahn's "Deep and Dark and Dangerous" brings readers deeper into the dark, dangerous lake side world. Ali's mother and aunt have been away from the lake for so long and Ali wants to know what has kept them away. Unfortunately, she and her young cousin, Emma, find out first hand. They also work to solve a mystery and put both their mother's consciences at ease. I like how Mary Downing Hahn's books don't leave you hanging. At the end, there is a resolution that puts the reader at ease and also seems a logical conclusion. "Deep and Dark and Dangerous" is all of those things. Hahn also portrays family relationship intricacies in a realistic and deep way.
