My Take on the Book
This was a great book that brings in both humor as well as great characters and a strong plot. There were many points in the story where my daughter and I left laughed out loud, and it is through these types of stories that I know that we become even closer together which is always great.
The author also does a great job and creating in developing characters that you want to know more about, while at the same time giving the characters great lines and dialogue to sustain them and take them to the next level.
The book also has some twists and turns in it that it was not expecting, and this made the story even more fun as it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. At the same time she throws together some amazing tie ins from past books that make the book even stronger!
