I finished this at about four in the morning It s not terribly scary, but sort of suspenseful SPOILERS The disembodied hand of Jade Green was interesting I never really got the feeling that it wanted to hurt Judith, but then again, I had the luxury of reading the book, and not actually having the experiences I d imagine, if it actually happened to me, I d be pretty freaked, too.
I thought that Jade Green was fairly predictable, but almost in a good way The end wasn t really a surprise at all MAJOR SPOILERS because discovering that Charles killed Jade was pretty much made obvious to the reader Even so, it was still an awesome moment It was almost as if the reader wasn t suppos Jade Green was an amazing, frightening, fantastic ghost story about Judith Sparrow, a fifteen year old girl who has just become an orphan and is sent to live with her uncle in South Carolina Her uncle has only one rule you may not bring anything green into the house Judith s mother had given her a picture of her in a green silk frame as a gift, and Judith cannot bear to part with it, so she secretly brings it in the house What Judith doesn t know is that three years prior, a girl named Jade Green had taken her own life in that very house, and the color green is the one thing that awakens the ghost of her.
I gave this novel at ten out of ten because I loved it a lot I was hesitant at first because I don t go to sleep very well after reading scary novels, but I enjoyed this one a lot and I think it was worth losing sleep over I would recommend this to anybody Literal
Okay, I m sorry, but I just wasn t in love with this one To begin with, it s got that stick up the butt pseudo Victorian narrator voice that great children s authors of the 1980s always seem to adopt when they re writing about the 1800s think Cynthia Voigt in The Callender Papers I hate that voice Also, the whole thing just seemed muddled to me Age wise, I mean, not plot wise See, the story s about Judith, this orphan who comes to live with her uncle after her mom dies in an INSANE ASYLUM wooooo , and the only stipulation that her uncle has is that she CAN T BRING THE COLOR GREEN INTO THE HOUSE But of course she does, because GIRLS IN THESE books NEVER LISTEN, and the house immediately becomes haunted Because it turns out that a girl named Jade Green seriously, whut lived there before her, and Jade Green totes offed herself By cutting off her hand and letting Orphaned Judith Sparrow had been given everything by her uncle when she arrived penniless, and even still she has disobeyed him In the exciting horror novel Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Judith never thought she would be so lucky Her uncle had taken her to live in his house in Whispers, South Carolina All seemed well, but that is about to change.
There is only one big rule her uncle has that she must keep Nothing green is allowed in the house Judith thinks nothing of it every family has something odd about them She promises her uncle she will leave anything green behind, but she doesn t keep her word for long She has only one possession of her dead mother, a picture fitted in a lovely green silk frame She cannot bear to leave it, so she barriers it at the bottom of her suitcase and takes it along When she arrives at her uncle
