Publisher's Summary

Debut author Belinda Bauer crafts an incredibly moving first novel in Blacklands. Twelve-year-old Steven is determined to put an end to his family’s misery and find the remains of his uncle, who was believed to be murdered as a child by a local pedophile. Steven spends his days digging for clues around his grandmother’s home, but when his search fails to unearth anything new, he reaches out to the only person with answers—the accused murderer now serving life in prison.

    "just okay"

    This wasnt a terrible book by any means, but without giving too much away it is about a boy, Steven, contacting a convicted pedophile to try to resolve the mystery of his uncles disapperance when he was a child. This leads us to hear a lot about what the pedophile is thinking and feeling, how he trys to groom Steven, and how he misleads the authorities about being a 'reformed' character. I found this very unsettling and didnt really engage with the book because so much times was spent hearing about this revolting pedophile - well written, but not for me!
