{Book Review} The Big Tree by Rick Hautala

Rick Hautala created one of the best coming-of-age stories with The Big Tree. The novella is set in 1960 during Hurricane Donna. It is about a young boy, his friends, his brother, and a mysterious girl. Is the mysterious girl real? The story has all the right ingredients to make a perfect storm. The story has all the things a kid goes through during childhood: loss, being bullied and growing up unexpectedly. Rick Hautala weaves the natural with the supernatural. This is my first Rick Hautala book, but I am going to read his other work. Great novella and author!

I highly recommend this novella to fans of horror!

5/5 stars!
