The following is an honest review of Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Winterwood
Nora Walker lives in the woods not far from a town called Fir Haven. Although she views the woods as her home, others view it as magical, perhaps even haunted. Nora comes from a line of women who have special abilities and an affinity for the woods. One day, a boy goes missing from a camp for troubled teens. Although the boy named Oliver seems to have disappeared, Nora senses there is something mysterious surrounding the night he vanished.
Her suspicions are validated when she comes across Oliver in the woods after a devastating snowstorm. He can’t remember how he survived in the woods or how he got there but Nora knows she has to find out.
Review of Winterwood
Shea Ernshaw is an auto-read for me. I read Wicked Deep recently and fell in love with it. In fact, you can see my review of it here: https://theselyricsandlines.com/1018/the-wicked-deep-review-and-age-rating/?swcfpc=1
What I love about her writing is the atmosphere she creates as soon as you crack open the book. You are able to visualize everything she describes as you are reading it because of the detailed descriptions she includes. Even though this book is technically a contemporary read, it often times reads like a lyrical fairytale. If you are looking for a book to read this winter I highly suggest this one. Grab yourself a cozy blanket and something warm to drink and be transported to Winterwood.
I gave Winterwood 4/5 stars on Goodreads.
Suggested Age Rating for Winterwood
Winterwood contains language, underage drinking/smoking, mention of women who are in relationships just to conceive, and romance with no sexual content. This book is classified as Young Adult and I would give it an age rating of 14-15+.
