Book Review of 'The 13 Treasures' by Michelle Harrison

The 13 Treasures was written by Michelle Harrison and published by Simon and Schuster UK, Ltd., in 2009. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com
While visiting her grandmother, Tanya discovers an unsolved mystery that began many years ago when a girl simply vanished from the woods nearby. Tanya’s grandfather was the last person to see the girl, but her grandmother will not speak of the incident. With the help of the caretaker’s son, Fabian, Tanya embarks on a journey to uncover the truth. But, Tanya has some secrets of her own--a magical ability to see fairies.
The 13 Treasures was an incredible book and extremely hard to put down. I do not normally enjoy books that are full of mythical creatures, but found myself completely entranced by this one. This book is very well written and grabs the reader's attention, refusing to let go. The 13 Treasures is a fantastic mystery that keeps you guessing until the very end, with characters that stand out and an enticing setting.
I am giving The 13 Treasures, a 5-spider rating and recommending it to readers of all ages. Lovers of the YA genre will devour this book and move eagerly onto the next in the series.
