Book Review: Room 13 by Robert Swindells

The story builds beautifully. The tension creeps up on you like a shadow with a knife. The ending ties together cleverly in a way I don't want to spoil for you but really hope you read. It is a masterclass in storytelling, like a scary story around a campfire that you just don't want to turn away from, even though it's giving you the heebie-jeebies. And Robert Swindells won the Children's Book Award for it.
