    very interesting and knowlegeable novel.

    I enjoyed this novel in school. Did it in my Primary School in South America. And I had enjoyed it very very much. Actually since I moved to the USA. I tried to look for this novel in the bookstore. But with no luck at all. So please help me get it.
