"This is not the way home. This is never the way home!"
Folklore of a tree troll has always been whispered about in Misty Peaks. But now Hudson must decide if he believes it or not. Should he take the shortcut through Wasted Wood, or should he go around and guarantee he'll be grounded.

My daughter and I listened to this book on the way to a hockey tournament. We listened to it all in one shot. We were engaged throughout the entire story, often hanging on the edge of our seats to hear what would come next.
We both loved the book. Brock Eastman has a gift at writing action packed stories without being repetitive.
Wasted Wood is one of my favorite short stories. It is well written and is a book you won't be able to put down.
This was a great book! It hard to stop, I loved how he portrayed the characters they were so real to me , and I like how he shows that disobedience has consequences. But I was quite disappointed when it ended.
In Wasted Wood, Brock Eastman showcases yet again his articulate voice and boundless imagination. Mr. Eastman has written a vivd, lively, roaring tale of important morals and intriguing suspense. From sci-fi (The Quest For Truth Series also by Brock Eastman), to "creepy horror", Mr. Eastman never fails to show his readers a clear scope of captivating fictional worlds. Full of engaging action and insightful emotions, this novella is sure to prove a fun read for younger/middle grade audiences. Highly recommended for any reader searching for a fun, creepy campfire story. This audio edition makes following the story convenient, easy, and effortless. All the better to let your imagination loose. Thanks again Mr. Eastman, for using your God given talents! We certainly enjoy the results!
I would totally recommend this to one of my friends! I don't want to be cliché or anything, but Wasted Wood literally keeps you at the edge of your seat! Not only that, but it also has a great life lesson intertwined through the story!
My favorite character was Hudson, because I think generally all kids can relate to him.
Brandon Ruiter had the perfect creepy voice for this book. He portrayed each character's voice as I would imagine they would sound like. The way he added the sound affects was awesome!
"At the top of the embankment a huge wispy branch clawed through the air."
The AWESOME description paints a vivid picture in your mind! Also a hint of humor here and there that makes you chuckle a bit. The story has a great life lesson to live by! Like all of his other books that I've read I honestly don't think Brock Eastman could've written this book any better than he has! I loved it!!!
I just finished listening to this story, and WOW! The storyline is epic and the narrator is amazing.
Another incredible story by Brock Eastman! I highly suggest reading or listening to it!
This review is written by my 11 year old son: Brock Eastman's number one fan. . .I would recommend this book to a friend because the author is so talented. He is especially great at weaving action into any story. This grabs the reader and keeps you hooked.
My favorite part is when they fought the monster at the end.
His voice sounds very natural and like he wrote the book. He uses emotion and changes his tone a lot.
Some parts definitely made me laugh.
I really like how he puts morals in the story and teaches lessons. This is one of my favorite authors.
