  1. I did enjoy reading the book, but I didn’t think it was the best book of the year (so far). I would not vote it for newbery, though I still liked the story.

  2. This book was exciting and well-written. The plot was abit predictible, but Ienjoyed reading it. I agree with Bonnie.

  3. I didn’t like this book. The first half wasn’t interesting and the second half was strange and a bit confusing. Overall it was hard for me to finish reading. I don’t think this could win.

  4. This book is very creative and interesting. I really enjoyed reading it. I connected with the characters and liked the writing style. I agree that i have read better books, but that doesn’t mean that this is not a great book.

  5. I think I have to agree with Bonnie, Cassidy, and Krista. I loved the plot and characters but at the same time it is a book I would recommend to friends but I have read better books so far this year. I would recommend this book for middle school to early high school girls.I am not sure that this book is a Newbery book though.
