BOOK REVIEW: “School of Fear”

December 15, 2011

By Elizabeth G.

When four phobic children go to a school to help them get over their fears, it makes quite an interesting story in this fun-filled adventure by Gitty Daneshvari.

There’s Theo, who’s afraid of danger, and of him or anyone in his family dying.  His case is so serious that he has to call every member of his family every hour to ask them if they are dead or alive.  Madeline, a young British girl, is deathly afraid of any sort of creepy crawly.  She always wears a veil and carries six cans of bug spray.  Garrison, a Miami town boy, is terrified of deep water, almost fainting at just hearing the waves crash along the sand.  And don’t forget Lulu, who’s the most claustrophobic person you’ll ever meet.

The school the kids go to is probably the weirdest place they’ll ever set foot in.  Also, probably the scariest place for them.  Before I give anything else away, I must say that you have to read the book in order to find out how these children battle their fears.
