In my opinion, Until I Find Julian was a good book. The characters all possessed very realistic traits and I really found myself rooting for Mateo and the others. This book was the perfect length and kept my attention with just the right amount of characters and details. One of the things that I liked most about the book was the small amounts of Spanish that the author included. I think this book is appropriate for all kids age 8 and older. It will also be especially enjoyed by readers that are fans of Esperanza Rising, a similar novel.
