My 12 yo daughter LOVED this series. She was not much of a reader until she discovered Ally Carter's books and now she is an avid reader always looking forward to the next chapter. She discovered the magic of books with this series and I appreciate this author for that!

Intriguing, interesting read

As a teacher, I would recommend this be used for literature circles or independent reading. It is easy for students to read on their own, has an intriguing storyline, and though it is confusing at times I think it will encourage students to enjoy reading.
