Deceit of parents and making out are for older readers, if at all and definitely not for the recommended age of 10. The book was weird because the magical stuff was more for a 10 year old, but the other stuff was for an older child. I didn't get it. Besides all that, I really couldn't get into the book. My mind kept wandering as I read it.
