Horror – 244 pages – Published 2015
The Nest by Kenneth Oppel is a somewhat strange novel focusing on a middle-grade boy named Steven who has anxiety issues. His family is struggling with the stress of a sick baby who has a heart condition among other birth defects. He has recurring nightmares until one night when a soothing stranger enters his dreams. I rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars because I couldn’t put it down – I read it in one day. However, it’s missing character development.
