Thank you, First Reads, for a free advance copy of this Mamba Point. The phase of the moon worked in my favor this time!

I really enjoyed Mamba Point. For starters, I really appreciated Linus as a character. I think any kid (and a lot of us adults!) like to think about how we can be better and cooler and maybe a bit different, when we move somewhere new, or at the beginning of a new school year. I've also had the experience of moving to a foreign country and been through that (really fun) adjustment period, like Linus, so that resonated with me as well.

Beyond my affection for Linus, I enjoyed Scaletta's writing style - it came across as very easy and natural, and it sounded like a mature 12-year-old. A little funny, a little quirky, and overall a pleasure to read.
