When I started this book Megan came by and said something about it being a kids book. I replied that I thought it could be a cute junior high book and she gave me a funny look. When I got to the last 50 pages I decided she was right. It really was for 4th or 5th grade ages because it's ending was just so thrown together. I was a little disappointed. The story was cute and even though it was predictable the end could have been considered cute too if it were well written. Sadly it was not. So then comes a dilemma. If I am thinking it is too thrown together for a junior high kid then would I really recommend it to a grade school-er when there are so many other good books out there. IDK. In the end I will still give it 3 stars because it was a cute story line but with the note that it is probably really a 2.8.
