Boring. The main character acts very ignorant. Many spelling errors. Could had cut out a lot of unneccessary bull.
The first couple hundred pages were slow to get the story started but after that I felt engaged in the book. The beginning to me was like Polyanna of 1390 travels to 1999. But once the story finally unfolded, it was worth the read.
