Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Meggie spearheads an investigation into the mysterious disappearances and murders of young people in her town, discovering a plot to rob others of their youth in a horrifying way.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10 Meggie was blessed as an infant when a tarantula paid regular visits to her cradle to spin stories for her education and entertainment. Sixteen years later she finds herself caught in a web of terror as her teenage acquaintances are kidnapped and/or gruesomely murdered in woods that she frequents. In her efforts to investigate, she finds herself a victim in the fiendish plot of three old men (one her former high-school teacher) to restore their youth through the transplants of young hearts. This discordant mixture of fantasy and mystery is composed of too many elements that never blend successfully. The whimsy of the prologue is jarring when juxtaposed with the violence and bitterness of the ensuing chapters. The plot is absurdly illogical and fraught with inconsistencies and coincidence. Characterization is uneven: while Meggie is quite complex, others are caricatures of evil or mere sketches to supplement the cast. The language is artificial with a distorted syntax that becomes intrusive and confusing, and Thomas' imagery, which was so powerfully evocative and genuine in Marked by Fire (Avon, 1982), is overwrought and muddled here. A disappointment to fans of both genres. Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Library, Calif.
