Joy Wells is a huge fan of the renowned author Ethan Alvin Peugeot. She can't help but think that E. A. Peugeot might of wrote one of his famous scary stories, "The Bawl of the Bog Fiend", about the bog that is right next to where she lives in Spooking.
Spooking is a small and way older town compared to it's neighboring town, Darlington. Darlington is where Joy goes to school, due to there being no school in Spooking. Joy hates going to school there, almost all the kids from Darlington joke and make fun of Joy, and her brother Byron just because they come from Spooking. The kids aren't the only ones in Darlington that want to get rid of Spooking and the bog. After a school assembly about the future of Darlington, Joy and her brother uncover a plan to get rid of the bog, that may possibly be the home of the Bog Fiend in Peugeot's story, and eventually Spooking itself!

Fiendish Deeds is an awesomely spooky gothic themed book. I really like the gothic theme of it, it is sort of like Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events but it has a different feel to it. Which makes it all the more spellbinding. Joy Wells is also a wonderfully created character, very believable. As I read the book, I wanted to step right into it and help Joy save the bog. And her brother, Byron, is just as wonderfull.
The plot was great. I was always wondering what was going to happen next and right when I wasn't expecting it BAM there was a surprising twist that caught me toataly off guard.
I recommend this book to any one around the ages from 8-16. Some adults might like it too, if you think it mght be good then odds are you will.

I've heard this book is for children, but I don't think so because it seems like a creepy tale, we should be careful with our children.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will give a try. It is the type of story that I am more into. I hope that there is a kindle version.
