Humorous fiction, science fiction, adventure, fiction.

Rating 10/10

Leif And Rex are just normal kids living out their lives and wanting to get into filming. Their friend, Alicia, helps them film a scene for Polterdog, their film that’s like the poltergeist but instead of a ghost it’s a ghost dog. After a terrifying incident at a BBQ, Alicia is sent to this reform school that’s been utterly horrifying. Once kids go in, they either leave with no emotion or they have been proclaimed dead in an freak accident. Eager to get her out, they do some investigating with Janine and her sister who went there. They find out that the spring that’s inside the reform school property is a cursed spring. The reason why the headmaster needs the kids is to revive his daughter who was taken by this river spirit. Rex and Leif do the impossible to rescue not only to rescue their friend but other kids who have been in the river for a long time.

I was recommended to read this and I’m a fan of Good Mythical Morning. I had to read this book because the cover art was so intriguing, and the brief summary caught my attention. I loved how Res and Leif were exactly like Rhett and Link. There was enough science fiction, humor, and thrilling aspects that made me binge read this novel within two days’ time. I enjoyed this novel so much that I plan to reread this novel in the near future. I highly recommend anyone to read this novel. This was like if Stranger Things was set in the south, had more humor, and less drama.
