This book started out a little slow but then became more and more interesting. I like how it is about a family who isnt very close to one another but gets closer as the book goes on. The nook experience was great. A few miss spellings but overall was great. A great first read on the nook. I recommend it to ages 10- 50. Everyone will love this book.Was this review helpful?

It was good but had a few problems
This book is about a girl named Jen who goes to Wales to visit her family (dad, sister, and brother) for Christmas vacation. However, her sister and brother are miserable living without Jen so she decides to stay with them for a year. Peter, the brother, finds a mysterious and magical key on the beach of Wales and is enchanted by it, for it 'sings songs' to him and shows him Taliesin, a bard from the ancient Welsh myths. However this key gets known to the outer world and Peter has to decide whether he wants to keep it or do something else with it. I will not tell you what he did with the Key, or else that will spoil it. But in the next few sentences I will tell you what I thought about the book. This book was very good. It had a solid beginning, middle, and end like all books should have. I liked how Ms. Bond combined realistic fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction to make this book. It felt like I was really with Jen, on the train going to Wales, or with Becky (the sister), walking up the emerald green hills. However, what I didn't like about this book was that it was kind of slow in action. Sometimes I became really bored when I was reading this book! I didn't understand why Peter did what he did to the Key at the end - it was very confusing! However, this book was good, and I recommend it to anyone.Was this review helpful?

A Fascinating Novel!
This book was very fascinating and filled with facts. It was an enjoyment to finish it. I would totally recommend this book because following the story of the harp key was really interesting and kept the book alive.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An All Around Good Book
I found this to be a very good book. It was suspenseful and exciting. I started reading it one evening and read through the night until I finished around 4am. It is not too high of a reading level and is was a lot of fun to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
