Review this title!

disgusted

I read the glowing csm review and I was so excited when I found this in my library's new arrival section. I love to read, and it sounded great. But to my disgust, it was a pretty typical story, written clumsily, and with stilted dialogue and thought processes. Definitely nothing to rave about.

Good

I liked this book. It was not the best but it was a good book and I enjoyed it. I think this is a good book for 10 year olds if they are fast readers, otherwise I think this book is more appropriate if you are 12 years old. A boy might like this book better if he likes reading because he might be able to relate to it better than a girl or a boy who does not like reading.
