Jeanette - Jack had to read this last year in 6th grade. He loved it and got a lot out of it. It was really interesting to listen to my then 12 yr old pull apart the story.

As I was reading it I tried to put my mind back to when I was that age. The things I focused on would have been so different. Back then, story was EVERYTHING for me, and I didn't care much about anything else like "deeper meaning." I would have been imagining myself as one of the characters.

I was wrapt when I picked up a box of books to cover for my daughters high school library. This was on the top. My husband couldn't quite get why I was excited ;)
