This is a very poorly written book. I actually couldn't read most of it it is so bad. I fail to understand how it gets good reviews. I blame our education system I suppose. Its not even really written at the level I'd expect from a pre-teen author. If you were to watch a poorly thought out tv show and narrate it for a blind viewer, it might work out close to this. The author can't even decide on past or present text, even within the same sentence. Who is the editor of this book? Do they speak English I wonder. Anyway, I ended up skimming through it a little and the good news is nothing happens so you don't have to worry about spoilers. I've heard other books from this author are superior, but I remain skeptical.
