Wax: A 5 star book review

Wax, by Gina Damico, is a lovable story starring small town Parrffin, Vermont, home to the possibly strangest wax factory in existence. The lead, Poppy, quickly discovers dozens of life-like wax figures, some of which seem almost alive. The plot quickly thickens, with a wax boy named Dud and a zombie uprising that only the teens are left to fight. The only minor issue being the character Jill, Poppy’s supposed best friend, who we learn is extremely one dimensionally and filled with doubt. Of course, not many would believe wax statues could come to life, but Jill is constantly putting Poppy down in favour of herself. Overall, this book deserves 5 stars for having a racing plot and sharp plot twists, alongside a sweet story of a girl and boy who meet under unexpected circumstances.
