  1. I liked the plot of this book in the beginning; however, I thought it lost some of its strength when Jade Moon goes to America. I probably wouldn’t recommend this for the Newbery.

  2. I found the plot for this book really creative, but nearing the end of the book, it got a bit chaotic. This book felt a bit complicated, and packed with too many events and too much info. One thing I really liked though , was the characters, because they had a lot depth and background to them. When Jade Moon started pretending that she was someone else, I felt the book start packing in more things before it ended. Overall, I really liked this, and I say that it would be a fun read for a lot of people, but I don’t think it is Newbery.
