  1. A very interesting and funny book. This is definitely one of my favorites of the year. The plot was the best part of it but i liked the humor too. The character developement is not the greatest in this book, but the plot makes up for that. This has a chance at the newbery and is one of my top picks.

    1. I enjoyed the book, and liked the storyline. I agree with Krista, however, and I do not think that the character development was that good. I like to know about the characters that I am reading about. To me, that was this book’s only failing. I do not think it is Newbery worthy. Definitely a close second, though.
