Great for the heart!

I think Three Times Lucky is a classic! It is one of those books that everyone should read at least once. The characters are not stereotypical, and they are worth getting to know. There is a murder, but it is not graphic at all. There is also a father who drinks too much, but the children learn how to deal with him.

I usually don't hate books but this one was painful. I had to read it for summer reading at school. When I got to school for the year everyone hated it. Even the teachers said it was painful. But if you like books that move very slowly or confusing then get this book.

Save Me

I thought this book was horrible. I was forced to read it for 6th grade summer reading. The book was slow and really confusing. It took me at least 4 or 5 chapters before I even knew the characters names. Most of my school thought this book was a bore too. It is fine for kids 9 and up

This book is not for kids. We wonder why kids are the way ther are. If you wanna teach your kids to be abusive and drunks and call others names. Yeah read it but if your a parrent who cares what there kids take in. Than dont allow it. I cant believe the school system allows this. This is why my kids will be home schooled.

Great Book!

This book was amazing. The characters are great and they demonstrate an understanding of important things like family and friends. I love this book and will probably read it again and again.

Three Times Terrible

I read this book for 5th grade Battle of the Books. This book was too scary for me. I would not recommend this book for kids under 15!
