Was good for younger kids

While the book sends a meaningful message it is meant for younger kids. Also the book is hard to get into it doesn't reach the climax until the over half way though the book. In my opinion it is like they started to write a book about a kid with some issues trying to move on from the death of his friend and just added a murder mystery for fun.
