Boring
I am a six grader that read this book for spring break. It ruined my spring break. It was boring and a snooze fest. You will get so bored untill you hit page 200 out of 270. Yah that is right. Also if you like book that aren't really cliff hangers this isnot the book for you. DONT READ IT!!!!!
mandi boo

stupid
I absolutely hated this book! it was the worst book that I've ever read and it was even worse than the Hobbit that they made me read in school. Just because I am saying this don't start thinking I'm stupid. I have a lot of favorite books and magazines and I'm in GT for everything in my school. I just think that Jeanne could have done a much better job. Heck! i found a few mistakes in there myself!
NO IM JUST JOSHIN YA!!!! it was a really great book and i absolutely loved it!! I just have one question...How did you come up with such a good book by yourself?
