Cassie Winslow is 16. She has just lost her mother in a terrible accident. Now, lonely and frightened, she has come to live with the father she barely knows and his new family in tiny False Harbor on Cape Cod. For Cassie, the strange, unsettling dreams that come to her suddenly in the dead of night are merely the beginning. Very soon, Cassie Winslow will come to know the terrifying powers that are her gift. And in the village of False Harbor, nothing will ever be the same.

Horrible-avoid this one...

What disappointed you about The Unwanted?

It was boring, slow, and not that interesting.

What could John Saul have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

re-write the whole book?

Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

Not sure

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness, Disappointment, boredom

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't ever recommend this book...maybe you can get past its boring story and a story that lacks the ability to made you care about the character or their plight. Good luck, and buy it on sale....

not to my liking.

I didn't mind the story line at all, but it really was more like it had been written for young teenagers rather than adults.
