  1. Excellent read. It’s kind of hard to explain, but the plot is twisted and strange and I liked it ;)

  2. ….. I really don’t like this book. In the beginning they kept dragging it on. I would not prefer this to anyone.
    This is not a NewBery read and I think that 9 and up is the age limit to this book.
