This book was totally awesome! I absolutely loved it. The first time that I read it was when I was on a trip with my parents to visit my grandparents in Arizona during Christmas time. It was one of my Christmas presents. I lost some sleep because I couldn't put the book down at night. I first read it when I was about 13 or 14 years old. I saw the book and thought "oh my gosh, it's so long! I'll never be able to read this." Once I started however, I couldn't put it down. I'm almost 18 years old now, and I've read it about seven or eight times. I recommend this book to anyone regardless of what you normally would read. If you have any other books by this same author that you loved, write me and tell me their titles! I love reading!
