  1. Okay, I know that people always say not to judge a book by its cover… but this book has an amazing cover, and a wonderful story inside to match. I love the three main characters, they were realistic and inspiring. The plot is unique, bringing the three children together for a great ending. The writing style is descriptive, and draws you in… I couldn’t stop reading! One of my favorite books in the Newbery club this year.

  2. i loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    it was definably ether the best or second best (behind 13 princess) book this year. however i don’t know if the book would be good for a ten year old to read. my cousin (who just happens to love hunger games) wanted to read it, but didn’t have the time

  3. I loved this book! It has adventure, romance, and clockwork men. It kept you hanging, waiting to see what was going to happen to the kids. I think that it has a real shot at Newbery: it’s definitely going to be one of my favorite books.
