Cursed is a super quick mystery for young readers, with a tinge of the paranormal. Eli, a very smart high school boy, finds a mysterious coin when taking a shortcut home from school. Then he starts having strange dreams about the past. Is this coin truly a good luck charm? Read to find out. 
This was an enjoyable and easy read. I'm curious to see where the story goes in future installments.

The book was okay. I was disappointed it did not have an ending, so I am guessing this is a series. I would not add it to my library because it is geared more toward middle school rather than high school. It was nicely written. but I am not sure I would want to read any more of the series. I would recommend it for middle schoolers; I think they would enjoy the mystery more. On the basis of offering it to middle school students, I would give it four stars.

A super quick read geared toward the middle school set.  This is the first in a new series and tells the story about Eli, a nerd at school with great grades who gets picked on.  When he and a friend cut across an old piece of property on their way home, they find a golden coin.  And Eli is pretty sure after he takes it home that the coin is actually glowing, although he knows that's impossible.  After looking up the history of the town and that piece of land, a story emerges about a train robbery where the money was never seen again.  A good story, but super short.  This took me all of an hour or so to read.

this was a great start to the Sinkhole series, it does what I was hoping for from the description. It was a great story and I was hooked from the first page. It was such a good entry in the paranormal genre and I really had a great time reading this. The characters did a great job in being well done and I'm glad I got to go on this journey with them. I look forward to reading more in this series and from this author.

"They approach the property and realize it’s no longer the desolate wasteland it once was. It looks like ground zero of a natural disaster. A collection of scientists and researchers from the state and nearby universities are setting up equipment."
