  1. I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters, the situation, and the plot. The book was intrugingand exciting. The book didn’t end on a cliffhanger, but I am looking forward to the sequal.

  2. I think this book is great. The plot was very exciting, and I thought the characters were really well described. However I felt everything was too predictable. I could usually tell what was going to happen before it happened. I think there should be a sequel because there are some unfinished problems in the book.

  3. I especially liked the ending; it was very surprising. The book itself was slightly predictable in some parts but also unpredictable in others. I think this book has a good chance of winning.

  4. I also think that a few parts were predictable, but others were very unpredictable. The plot was my favorite part. This book has a chance at the newbery.

  5. I liked this book but I wish that the beggining could have been sped up a little. The plot was good and so were the characters. The book would have a chance at newbery.

  6. I really like this book! it is my second favorite. I love the main character, Sage, from the beginning. I did find the book a bit predictable at times but it did not really matter. The book did not end with an obvious cliff hanger but there is still more story to tell. I would recommend this book for late elementary and middle school readers. I think this book could win the Newbery.
