Kid’s Book Review: The Swallow by Charis Cotter

This is a story about two girls named Rose and Polly who are very different from each other in many ways, in fact it seems like they are opposites. Despite their differences, they form a great friendship.

Rose has the ability to see ghosts, which she feels is a nuisance. Polly desperately wants to be able to see them, and is obsessed with learning all that she can about them.

One day, Rose and Polly find a tombstone with Rose’s name on it. Together, they try to find out whether Rose herself is a ghost by searching both of their houses, and looking through the library. I liked the concept of this story, it was very interesting.

Spoiler alert: I found the ending rather depressing. It was an interesting twist because of the story-line, but I would have enjoyed it more if it  wasn’t so sad.

Rating: 7/10
