Primarily aimed toward a young (12 and up) audience, this story about two high school students’ search for their missing teacher captures the attention of all ages. Bell uses this suspense/adventure setting to weave a story in which the main characters are forced to use their resourcefulness and individuality to save their teacher and themselves. Bell shows the value of the individual and speaks to those approaching adulthood about how they might make a difference to another person, to a community, or even to the world.
Madelyn L’Engle comments “Night Places is a thriller chiller, which will keep the reader turning the pages, but (as one would expect from Martin Bell) there are great riches beneath the story.”
