This book wasn’t the best. It is school based, so it has fights, punishments, bullying, etc. The book was basically just dull. I didn’t get into the story. It seemed like what she wanted to get wasn’t exactly enough to make the story interesting. The characters were good. Some of them didn’t go with the story well, but they were okay. The setting was probably the better of the story. It had good descriptions and directions about where the characters were and where they were going. Overall, this book was boring with occasional ‘good’ parts. I don’t recommend this book for people under 12.
