I'm a teen. I love reading and I read Jeremy Fink. It was one of my favorite novels. I loved how the characters were so distinct and how it was written. It had details, but it didn't drone on. It wasn't slow, but it wasn't too fast. It was perfect. The end was unexpacted, but it was amazing. I loved how it could really happen, and how Jeremy and Lizzie are so determined. In all, it was amazing.
