    Awesome Book!

    I enjoyed reading this book very much. It was entertaining, a fun page-turner, and kept me guessing thoroughout the story! Milo Snow was quite a fun character and his lousy luck always seemed to get him into trouble somewhere! The author certainly gave me a lot of drama and suspense to keep me involved! I plan to add this book to our list of "easy reads" at my next book-club meeting. My daughter can't wait to read it next! Great job!

    A simple read

    I wasn't told what age group this was for but I can tell you, as an adult, your eyes will glaze over and you probably won't make it past the second chapter. If you are buying this for a child, be advised that if they are old enough to have the attention span to read a novel, this one will not entice them. This will not challenge their minds or imagination.

    Not For Me

    I should have read the reviews first. Even the positive review for this book calls it an 'easy read' and that is really what you'll get. Very simple terms are used for describing everything (what a bore) which leads me to believe this probably was intended for an elementary school read. I agree with another reviewer that even if this is the intended audience, the writing style wouldn't challenge a child of that age group. If you're an avid reader and enjoy a book that you just can't put down, you'll want to keep browsing.
