... is an awful book. It took me forever to read because
I kept putting it off and reading other books to avoid it (Graceling and Dancer
and Nurse Matilda and so many others). I didn't find any of the characters in
this book interesting in the slightest and nothing particular was exciting. I
wouldn't recommend this book to anyone because I wouldn't want to torture them.
If this book gets the Newbery I am gonna be MAD.
Rating: * (it isn't any better than The Dark Frigate)
