My goddaughter read this book and recommended that I read it. It is a pretty nice read; very thoughtful plot but I felt was a little slow paced. I also thought the children talked more like adults in the book; or said things that little children just don't say. An average read that's good for a rainy day...

This bog was really good but it took me a long time to finish it. Some parts were boring some were very exciting.
