Gordon Korman does it again! Here's another book that will capture you from the start. A book told by various points of view - the main characters. At first I thought it would be choppy, but this book flows and is a quick read. I couldn't put it down and am now recommending it to many of my students. Several have read it and agree, it's a great book and they have recommended it to their friends.
This book is now one of my top 10 Young Adult books!
