BOOK REVIEW: The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden


In a post-storm New Orleans, Adele is haunted by myths, monsters, and her own family’s secrets.
After the storm of the century rips apart New Orleans, sixteen-year-old Adele Le Moyne and her father are among the first to return. Adele wants nothing more than to resume her normal life, but with the silent city resembling a war zone, a parish-wide curfew, and mysterious new faces lurking in the abandoned French Quarter, normal needs a new definition.
Strange events—even for New Orleans—lead Adele to an attic that has been sealed for three hundred years. The chaos she accidentally unleashes threatens not only her but also everyone she knows.
Caught in a hurricane of myths and monsters, Adele must untangle a web of magic that weaves the climbing murder rate back to her own ancestors. But who can you trust in a city where everyone has secrets and keeping them can mean life or death? Unless…you’re immortal.
REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 10 months
This book is absolutely amazing! 
My favorite character is Issac because he makes me feel better when I red about him. Adeline makes me feel good about myself and being a teenager. 
My favorite part is when Adeline talks to her dad because it makes me feel happy and secure. 
I recommend this book for anyone who likes vampires, adventures, and fascinating stories! 
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
