In the corrupt metropolis of Peligan City, Lil Potkin, a determined young reporter, is on the lookout for a scoop. One rainy night she meets Nedly, the ghost of a boy that no one else can see. Nedly has been looking for someone to believe in him ever since the investigation into his disappearance went cold. When they discover that his death is connected to a series of mysterious murders, Lil and Nedly set out to expose those responsible, with the help of a down-on-his luck private investigator, who might hold a clue to Lil’s hidden past.
I don’t really know what to say about this book. It was recommended to me numerous times by different people and I was really excited to pick it up. However, it fell flat for me. Maybe it was the hype that came with it? I don’t really know because I don’t actually have a specific reason for feeling let down.
Potkin and Stubbs is a well written, and creepy book. Maybe a little more creepy than i actually expected it to be especially based on the target audience. This definitely did take me by surprise and was something that I found to be unique.
This book just didn’t engage me, I found it very easy to put down and do something else whilst I was in the middle of reading it. I found the plot fairly predictable, which is fine because I am a lot older than the target. However I think this had an impact on my enjoyment.
I am really struggling to talk about this book, I am not really sure what to say. I don’t particularly have much to say which is a shame because I really wanted to love this just like everyone else. I would say pick up this book and form your own opinions as I am definitely in the minority.
