  1. I really enjoyed this book. The plot was well written and didn’t wander off. The characters were well portrayed and developed during the story. And the story was not predicable at all. I felt like I was part of the story and I connected with the characters. I would recommend this book for kids in middle school.

  2. I loved this book, and i definitely think that it could get an honor. The characters showed great character development, and you felt like you were sitting right there next to the character even though it was a fantasy novel. This is a perfect for 6th and up because parts of it most siblings and family members can relate to.

  3. This is a very unique book. The plot was very interesting and i wasn’t bored at any part. I was surprised at the end and a little disapointed about something, but i can’t say or it would give the ending away. I would definitely recommend this book to lots of people.
