This novel kept me on the edge of my seat and I'm looking forward to sharing it with my students in the weeks to come.
There was a book fair at school and she bought this book. She started reading it on the busride home. She has not put it down since. She is loving the suspense of the story. And for the first time in her life when I called her she replied"Just one more chapter?" That is something I will never forget.
I can't thank the author enough. She has turned my non-reader into a reader. And I am buying her other books as well. Thank you for opening the world of reading to my daughter.
