for the family, but boring!

I do not like this book because the language was hard to comprehend at some points for me. Another reason I did not like the book is beacause its so predictabe,I knew the ending the whole time! The last reason I did not like the book because there was no picures or photos ti keep me interested the whole time! I do not like this book.
