This book is very exciting. It will make you want to read the end before you read the reeeaaal good part. It will teach you a lesson, not to ever underestimate yourself. It is a good book for teens, it is also very funny! There are sad times and there are also happy times! One thing that is great about this book is that it leaves you wondering about whats going to happen.
