This book is a very difficult book to read with all of the twists and turns. I would NOT recommend. In the book it takes about 100 or so pages to actually get into the part with action and the interesting parts. Once you get into the action it is a very exciting book for 50 or so pages then it gets boring again. While I was reading this book I fell asleep numerous times. Super boring!
NOT RECOMMENDED. Student Reviewer: CJN, 7th grade
