43 Old Cemetery Road: Hollywood, Dead Ahead
written by Kate Klise, illustrated by M. Sarah Klise
This book is really getting back on track to the Klise sisters' early works, and I love it. The plot was still pretty simplistic, nowhere near as engagingly tangled as Letters from Camp, but the added plot from the film producers was a hopeful addition. More of that please. In their other serial work, Regarding the..., each book led up to the next, where these could pretty much be stand-alones, which, as a dedicated reader, is sad to see. Where has their complexity gone? I know their earlier novels weren't quite as conventionally "successful", but they were such better reads. I'm glad the sisters are finally getting the recognition they deserve, I just wish they got it for their significantly better works. Anyways, Hollywood, Dead Ahead was definitely an improvement, and as always, I'll be looking forward to the next installment, but more than anything, looking forward to the next Trial by Journal or Letters from Camp-esque workfrom Kate and Sarah Klise.
