I was so upset when I was pages away from the end and realized that I could have been giving the characters Scottish accents the entire time. I enjoyed this story a lot, and the characters were pretty great.
While I didn't fully love this book, aw, I'm really glad that I read it. Because the mystery was interesting and I liked the place it was set in. A tiny Scottish village, our time. It was exciting. There is a bit of magic, which was awesome.
And such an interesting story. I don't know how much I'm going to write about this book, as it was pretty short, and I don't want to talk about all the things that happened, as there weren't th I enjoyed this story a lot, and the characters were pretty great. I don't know how much I'm going to write about this book, as it was pretty short, and I don't want to talk about all the things that happened, as there weren't that much.
But I'm still going to write about some of it, and try to share why I liked this book, and why I didn't love it. One thing I do love, though, is the pretty cover.
I found the writing in this book to be pretty good, which I'm happy about. And as I said, I liked the story a lot. This book is about a mysterious fog that is just outside this village.
If people go into the fog, they never come back. It has been like this for hundreds of years, and no one knows why. There isn't any way to get their missing people back either. Which I found to be so interesting to read about. And I wanted to know more about this fog, I wanted to know why it was there, and what happened to all the missing people. I'm a little bit disappointed in how it ended, sigh, but I still liked most of it.
I liked reading about them figuring things out. I enjoyed reading about this town a lot. The book is set in our time, and yet this town felt pretty old fashioned, in some way. This book is told from the point of view of twelve year old Nolie and Bel.
Nolie just arrived in this village to spend the summer with her father, whom is trying to study the fog and such. I did like getting to know her.
Nolie was a great girl, and I liked her a lot. But I also didn't love her, because I felt like I did not know her well enough. I wish there had been more about her, more things to love about her. Because I do feel like I could have loved her lots, if the book had been longer and more detailed. It could have been more.
Then there is Bel, who has lived in this place her whole life. I liked this girl a whole lot too. She was pretty sweet and kind. I loved reading about her past a little, because it was sad, with how her former friend had treated her. It was interesting to read about, though. I liked reading about her family, they seemed pretty good. But yeah, I also felt like I didn't get to know this girl enough.
I mean, I liked reading about both girls, but also felt like it could have been written more, done a bit better. Ending was too rushed; not good. I really like reading about Nolie and Bel becoming friends, though. It was sweet. And I enjoyed reading about them hanging out and doing things together. But there was also too little of that.
And I didn't like the time jumps, as there had suddenly gone a whole week, then two weeks, and nothing had happened, and I have no idea what happened between those days. Oh, I wish this book had been longer, so that I could have loved it.
Well, I think I would have loved it. But even so, I did like it a lot. Just not enough. This story is about the fog. How it has started to move closer to the village.
There is also a boy. Who went missing a hundred years ago in the fog, and he just came back. Nolie and Bel are the only ones who know who he really is, as Bel have been seeing a photo of him her whole life. I liked how they all became friends, though that was too short too, hmph. As I didn't see enough about them just being together.
But they did have a cute friendship, even so, and I did enjoy reading about them all. I'm not going to write more about this book now, because it really is pretty short. But there is a mystery. And these three kids are working on figuring out how to stop this fog.
Journey's End was an interesting and somewhat exciting story. I liked the mystery of it all, and I mostly liked the characters. But yeah, I did not love it, and I feel a bit sad about that. But I'm still happy that I read this book. And I do think that you should be reading it too, as it was a pretty sweet middle grade book.

Journey's End is a fun, fast paced book about mystery, history, and friendship. Nov 16, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed Rachel Hawkins first foray into middle grade fiction.
As a fan of her YA novels, it was wonderful to see her translate her trademark humor and wit for a middle grade audience. Additionally, the story itself is equal parts fun, compelling, and mysterious making it a great choice for avid and reluctant readers.
All in all - I look forward to seeing what Ms. Hawkins has in store for middle grade readers in the future, because this one was an absolute delight!
Apr 14, Jennybeast rated it really liked it Shelves: Possibly the most excellent "what I did on my summer vacation" story ever -- ghosts, a wall of fog that people vanish into, the highlands of Scotland, and three unexpected friends making the most of summer. The kids are funny, the adventure is worrying, and the book is really hard to put down. I really enjoyed it.
Advanced Reader's Copy provided by Edelweiss. Jan 03, Scribs rated it really liked it. It took me a while to adjust to reading a middle grade book it's been a while but I found the voices very age appropriate and believable. The mystery was fun and again didn't stretch the limits of believability too far. I've always been a fan of Rachel Hawkins, and I was glad to see her write an engaging, clean middle grade book. Jun 12, Heather rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a wonderfully atmospheric novel for middle grades.
I highly recommend it and will, in fact, be downloading it for my nephews. Feb 04, Morgan Ashley marked it as to-read. Excited to read this, even though there is no info. This is my 'bet book' of the year. May 03, Sarah Bell marked it as to-read. Scottish highlands?! Definitely will be reding this book! Nov 14, Holly marked it as to-read-ya-mg-modern.
These three kids are very different from one another but become fast friends because of their situations, loneliness but also because they are perfect for one another. They are brave, adventurous and lots of fun to hang out with them.
Honestly, I have friend-crushes on all of them even though they are years younger than me. Everything just works well in this book. Journey's End is so much fun to read and so quick too.
It represents everything it is I love about a good Middle Grade novel and if you've gathered this from my ramblings quite yet, but I really liked this book. Its got good world building, good plot and wonderful characters. What else can a girl want? Basically, you should read it if you enjoy fun middle grade novels or pass it along to someone you know who enjoys fun middle grade novels! Broken Promise.
