Spyglass Series, Chapter 1 Review
Given that it is only the first chapter of the story, I don't have much to say about the plot. It is, however, described in the blurb and it suggests that the rest of the story will be exactly as stated. Admittedly, I'm curious about Mrs Jacobson and the direction she will take the story.

The writing style seems relatively simple and I appreciate the descriptions of the surroundings. Since we are reading the story from a teen's point of view I can't be sure if the simplicity is meant to help us get into Ronnie's head or not, but it's not an entirely bad thing. It ensures that readers won't get confused.
I think some attention needs to paid to the running sentences and the spelling mistakes but overall there could be a nice story in the making. Hopefully the details will unfold in the coming chapters because I love a good mystery!
