For me, this story has a pretty cohesive story line that makes the plot interesting to follow. I think that the time travel concept and how the story ends is really cool. The entire premise of the story struck me with an eerie, "Pretty Little Liars" concept that made me keep questioning where these letters were coming from.

I think if I had a 6th grade classroom, I would definitely teach this book. Going off of our discussions of censorship, I would venture to guess that there wouldn't be anything in this book that should reasonably keep it out of a classroom.

I had a hard time staying focused at times in this book because I felt that the story moved a little slowly for me, that said, judging that I'd put it at a 6th grade level, the slow plot development makes a lot more sense.
