I pretty much echo my father's review on this one. I wanted to love it & thought I was going to love it, but I didn't & that made me like it less than if I didn't have the expectation of loving it. I completely understand why my teachers used to get mad at me. Not living up to potential is worse than not having potential.

Katie Lowry I was actually going to wait a bit to write this review to see if maybe the story would ferment in my head a bit & I'd like it more after having slept on it for a week or so, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen, so there it is. Actually, I think I'll forget this book sooner rather than later. Kinda like Christopher does with things.
