I just started reading this book to my kids - I actually got it out for Neve (who is 6, but a very advanced reader, and ... well, she likes pink these days, and when she saw the pink sweater on the cover, she wanted it ... hey, there are worse ways to choose books!) to read to herself, and she started it, and I picked it up, and the first two sentences sucked me RIGHT in:

Once upon a time, my life was normal.

Then, the mirror in our basement ate us.

How can you NOT keep reading after an intro like that??? I started reading aloud, and both my 6 year old and 9 year old daughters were CAPTIVATED. They would yell at me when I would try to stop reading at the end of a chapter. In fact, Neve is upstairs still reading it right now ...
