Blacklands by Belinda Bauer was a bit slow moving I thought for a suspense novel but it did keep my interest. A 12-yr-old boy named Steven writes to the serial killer in jail to try to find out where the killer buried his uncle Billy who was killed when he was just a boy. I liked the way the letters were written and how suspense built up to when Steven and the killer confronted each other. It didn’t end like I expected. It's good and I recommend it

Blacklands by Belinda Bauer is awesome! I finished it in just two days because it was almost impossible to put down. This book is about Steven, a 12-yr-old boy who wants to find where a killer buried his uncle. He decides to write to the killer in prison and the letters back and forth between the killer and Steven is very interesting! This is Belinda Bauer’s first book, but I’ll be looking for the next one--super job!
