How I Heard About It: This book title had been getting a lot of "talk" via magazines, book stores, and of course on Twitter. I had read several of Lisa's other books and so I was excited to read her newest book. As I communicated with some of my Twitter "friends", I became more and more thrilled to start this book. I was not disappointed and it actually exceeded my expectations.
Who Should Read It: Before I read this book, I was debating whether I would use this book for a "Breakfast with Books" book club selection or a read aloud. Now that I have finished it, I think it would make a perfect book for a read aloud for my fourth graders. There are so many things in this novel that I don't want them to miss, that I want to be able to read it to them and discuss it as we go. I'm looking forward to introducing this novel to my class and sharing the adventure with them. I think any reader who is in fourth grade and above, would love to read this novel. I know it will become a favorite book on your book shelf. Happy Reading!
