Teenagers love this book. As an intensive reading teacher I am always trying to encourage students to read independently, something that kids who hate to read practically refuse to do. I was pleasantly surprised to see the book fly through the classroom as students passed it from one to another. (Students even borrowed it for their mothers to read.) The students who never picked up a book to read actually did read it, raved about it and began to request more books just like it. ( I passed them the author¿s prior book) Now, of course, both books have vanished from my room. I highly recommend this book if you need to encourage a teenager to read. The topics covered are relevant to them, and the chapters are short and full of action.. For some students it is a real accomplishment to read an entire chapter book and this is great practice as well as positive reinforcement. As I said, teenagers love this book!
