It's been more years than I want to admit since I read this book, but it's one that stayed with me. A short, easy read, but one that I consider a classic, and one that is an ideal choice for any tween, male or female.
I really enjoyed this book. I'm not one for lot's of detail, and there isn't too much given...I like to draw my own conclusion about the scenes laid out and the character's...this gives the freedom to do so but keeps you involved in the present story. I must say, I got a little teary at the end and books rarely have that affect on me :) I can't wait to read the second one!!!
