About the Author:

Michael J Moore is an author from Washington state. His books include Highway Twenty, which appeared on the Preliminary Ballot for the 2020 Bram Stoker Award, the bestselling post-apocalyptic novel, After the Change, which is used as curriculum at the University of Washington, the psychological thriller, Secret Harbor and the middle-grade story, Nightmares in Aston. His work has received awards, has appeared in various anthologies, journals, newspapers (i.e. the Huffington Post) and magazines (i.e. the Nation), on television (with acclaimed newsman, Carlos Watson) and has been adapted for theater.


Wicker Village is a trailer park with a dark secret that eleven-year-old Juanito Hernandez wishes he hadn’t discovered. He’s only lived there a week, yet the horrors within continue to find him—from a human-shaped swarm of bees, to a video on his phone that speaks directly to him, and then mysteriously vanishes. Soon his new friends begin to experience the same horrors, and the visions turn to threats. Juanito doesn’t blame his parents for not believing him, however, that doesn’t change the fact that they’re in very real danger.


It is a fun and enjoyable middle-grade book! I like it! My favourite character in this book definitely will be Juanito, he has a good heart, good analytical thinking and so mature regardless he is only 11 years old. You can see it when the boogeyman come and threaten him to harm his family and knowing that he must do something to stop it and my favourite part in this story when he carries the skeleton of Sarah! I mean I would be freaking scared if I need to dig a dead person cemetery in the middle of the night.

This story reminds me of the Goosebumps series. If you like it, then higher chances that you will like this story too. I like the way that Juanito's parents raise him that the close family or your close friend they tend to call it "rasa" which means "race" like ethnicity in Spanish word and we don't leave our rasa behind. This is the first book in the Nightmares in Aston series. I can't wait for the next book.

 This book was perfectly written, the pace of some part a bit slow but overall make me grip to story and keep me to turning the pages. Surprisingly I finish it in a day only. Overall i give ⭐⭐⭐over⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
