The Blank Page

Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
Brooke writes "LEAVE THIS PAGE BLANK" on the inside of her yearbook so her best friend has a place to sign. But someone else writes there first. The handwriting is bizarre and unrecognizable, and instead of well-wishes for the upcoming summer, the message contains a creepy warning. Brooke wants to believe it's all a joke... but her growing sense of dread is making her think otherwise. More

Like the last reviewer, I was sufficiently impressed by Krista Bean's "The Watch" to check out her other work, and hence found myself reading "The Blank Page". It's a very different story to the other piece, being set in the present day for a start, but it displays the same hallmarks: clearly-defined characters and settings that you quickly get wrapped up in and, most importantly, care about.

Krista Bean has a wonderful ability to paint her worlds using a modicum of similies and with easy-to-read, free-flowing text that doesn't rely on words so uncommon that you have to hurry to the dictionary.

This was very nearly a five - if I have to nitpick (and I hate to do it with work this good) I would say that Brooke's stumbling upon the 'answer' to her mystery seemed a little too easy/coincidental.

I shall certainly be looking out for more of Krista's work - maybe Zoe Delano could get her own story? :-)

I checked this out after reading The Watch, and I'm glad I did. It starts off being one kind of story, then turns into something else, then turns into something else again. I like that it's unpredictable, and the end makes you think.

After deleting the first eight drafts of the review I think this story deserves, I give up. It will just have to be simple. It's awesome and the author has an unmistakable talent for weaving a compelling story that is easy to get lost in. Great read.
