Imagine this: You’re in a California desert where your mom just got murdered, and her murderer is out to get you too. That’s what the book that I recently read, Desert Angel by Charlie Price, is about.Angel, a fourteen-year-old girl who was in this situation, is on the run from Scotty, her mom’s murderer. Angel works hard to keep hiding from Scotty.I found this book a tad bit boring. There was action at the beginning and end, but it seemed there was nothing in between but planning what would happen when Scotty did come. A little was alright, but soon, I just wanted to get to the action and not have to sit around and wait any longer for something to happen. I actually thought that Scotty didn’t even care about catching Angel for a while.When there was action, it wasn’t that interesting, either. It didn’t make my heart pound, like with most good action books. The author also used a lot of incomplete sentences, which was okay for a while, but then it just got a tad bit annoying and confusing.Desert Angel is 233 pages long. I would say the grade level would be from 5th-8th grade, for there was some inappropriate material for ages 10 and under throughout the book. Overall, this book is probably the worst “action” book I have ever read in all of my 11 years.
