Read in February, 2010

I don't know why I feel compelled to finish this series out...there's only one more to endure. I guess it's the fact that I've hooked so many kids onto the series this year; it feels wrong to have 3 of these boys 2 books ahead and a line of them ready to get there. It shouldn't be without me, right?

Anyway, I could barely stand this one, but I'm not sure if I've had it with the writing style because it's the 6th one I've read, or if the story sucked...

I didn't get sick of Percy Jackson, though; I became increasingly interested in that story despite reading the lines, "I uncapped Riptide" approximately nine thousand times. No....maybe Haddix just gets annoying after a while. Either way, my students loved this one equally (although they all agree that Imposters was the best) so I can't really give it 1 star. I didn't throw the book, and that says SOMETHING about its worth.

Moving on to what is thankfully the last in the Shadow Children series.

Taj Speight I thought the this book was a great read. The entire series seems to have lots of adventure. I thought the story was suspenseful and kept my attention. There were so many twists. I also thought this was an easy book to read for both boys and girls. Hopefully you will be able to finish the series.

Janessa What did you dislike about it? I'm honestly just curious :)
