For what this was, the book was very clever and entertaining. I wasn't sure I was quite as gripped by the 2 guys and a girl trio as in Harry Potter, but overall, it was well-done. I'm reading it more as a want-a-be author and not as a MG reader, so you might take the criticism for what it's worth. I will say, though, the writing is very clear, concise and easy to read. Skillfully written so that it's easy to read for MG but entertaining enough for adults. I've ordered the second in the series, so that should say something...
