More about Brightwood by Tania Unsworth:
In this spine-tingling tale, a girl fights to save her home and her life from a mysterious stranger.
Daisy Fitzjohn knows there are two worlds: the outside world and the world of her home, a secluded mansion called Brightwood Hall. But only Brightwood is real for Daisy--she’s never once set foot outside its grounds. Daisy and her mother have everything they need within Brightwood’s magnificent, half-ruined walls, including Daisy’s best friends: a talking rat named Tar and the ghost of a long-ago explorer who calls herself Frank.

Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
My name is Sierra. I'm eleven-years-old, I'm learning to play the ukulele, and my favorite flavor of ice cream is chocolate brownie.
What book did you read and why did you choose it?
I read Brightwood by Tania Unsworth. I chose it because when I read the description it sounded really interesting.
Can you describe this book in one word?
What was your favorite part of this story?
When Daisy first meets Frank (a girl who appears out of nowhere!).
If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do?
I would call the police, but since there are no phones or electronics on their house, I would head into town right away for help (Possible spoiler: which Daisy waits to do until the book.).
What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book?
It was amazing! And I never knew what was going to happen next so it kept me reading. Also, it has a kind of cool-creepy vibe.
What do you think about the book's cover?
It was one of the main reasons I picked it up--the shadow of the girl in the lit window was really intriguing.
Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not?
I would love to! I'd be really interested to see Frank with Daisy again.
Can you name another book that reminds you of this one?
No, not that I can think of, but I really enjoyed reading The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill.
If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be?
My favorite character was Frank, I'd love to hear which character was the author's favorite?
**Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on this book with us, Sierra!**
