This is a children's book that just felt totally off-kilter for me. The main character is supposed to be 15 and yet she and her friends behave as if they are closer to 10. The characters are most flat and one dimensional, the story is jerky rather than smooth transitions, and the premise a bit too unbelievable for me (and even my 10-year old self I'm fairly certain).
This book is setting itself up to be the first in a series of adventures, but unless things become more realistic & believable I'm afraid I just don't see this going too far. Sadly the dialog is sub-par, and the story has large gaps (which the author may be intending to be explained in future books, but I won't know as I won't be reading any).
