My opinion about this narrative is that it is exciting at moments and urges you to continue reading it, therefore I believe Ms. Draanen is a good author. But at some points during the novel it would get over-descriptive and cause boredom. For example, chapter 11- Teddy Bears. It is over descriptive when Ms. Draanen emphasizes the teddy bears and the one stowaway unicorn, given to Sammy from a friend. Sammy Keyes was not conscious in most of the novel, and it made it more challenging for her friends to find out who chased her up the fire escape and pushed her. My favorite character was Billy Pratt due to his braveness and his traits of humor. Whoever enjoys adventure, comedy, romance, and most important of all mystery, I recommend this narrative for you!
