This is the kind of book that I'd gladly sacrifice sleep for, and as a mom of a toddler, that's VERY rare for me. Read morePublished on September 10, 2009 by Chel Micheline
I was surprised at how I wanted to find out what was going to happen to the characters from one chapter to the next. The action is very unpredictable. Read morePublished on September 7, 2009 by John Hill
