Great Addition to the Series

I'm a huge fun of the Lunar Chronicles series, and I was so excited to get this book back in January. I thought it was an excellent book. Definitely a must-buy if you like the Lunar Chronicles. Though beware it does have quite a bit of violence, so that's really the only reason I would recommend it to older kids.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
