I find this book touching a sensitive subject quite intelligently. The subject, storyline, and theme are managed well in Forest Secrets: A Magical Mystery Novel by Laurie Woodward.

Two points have been taken up very well in the book – nature and friendship. It is a well-crafted story of the fight between good and bad. 145 pages are bound to bring a lot of surprises. There are elements of suspense, mysteries, friendship, conspiracies in this classic tale.

There is a kind of similarity between the two new friends – Daisy and Callandrai. Daisy is heartbroken seeing her parents’ divorce. She leaves her home and finds her new friend in a deep forest. Callandrai is a young tree – half plant and half human. Callandrai also had a recent heartbreak losing her tree parents. Daisy also meets another new friend who helps her in fighting against the evil. There are critical missions to handle. The foremost critical mission is to stop the logging company tearing down the forest. It has a deadline. The destruction of the forest is bound to happen after a specific timeline. Another critical mission is related to the first one – to find Callandrai’s parents back. If the forest gets destroyed, her parents will be lost forever.I would rate this book as 4 out of 5.
