Kid’s Book Review: The Wildstorm Curse

About the Book and Author

The Wildstorm Curse is a thrilling, magical story featuring a determined central character called Kallie who has dyslexia, just like the author Eve Wersocki Morris

13-year-old Kallie Tamm can’t wait to spend a week of her summer holidays at the Wildstorm Theatre Camp and she’s determined not to let her dyslexia hold her back from achieving her dream of becoming a playwright. But Kallie discovers that the cast will be performing a play written by a 17th Century witch, Ellsabet Graveheart, and strange, scary things start happening…


The Wildstorm Curse
Eve Wersocki Morris

Eve Wersocki Morris  has been making up stories her whole life. Last year her debut novel  The Bird Singers (published by Hachette) received high acclaim. Despite being diagnosed with dyslexia aged 12, she has not let that stop her literary ambitions and wrote her first full novel aged 13. She went on to study English at Nottingham University where she wrote, directed and performed in plays and was Arts Editor of the student magazine.

Eve’s grandparents came to the UK in 1946 as Polish refugees and were placed in Staffordshire. Her fascination with European myths and fairytales inspires her writing.

Book Review

The main character has dyslexia but is still an amazing playwright and saves the day

This book is amazing. The character Marlow was interesting they had real character development. I didn’t want to put this book down. I could not guess the plot twist until it happened. .

This book takes you on a rollercoaster first you believe one thing, then you start to believe another thing but suddenly it turns into another thing! The mystery element caught me off guard. The handwritten notes were a nice touch.

I like the character point of view change- it’s two stories and then bam they meet causing an explosion of excitement and mystery. This is the second book I’ve read by this author and it’s even more gripping than the first. I’d recommend this book to anybody aged 7-13 who likes mystery and reading supernatural books.
