Shit, I just wrote this fantastic review and then changed the shelf to "read" and just like that - vanished. Now you will never know what I had to say and will just have to rely on my stars.

Yes, this is a kid's book (or as we say in the biz "young adult" because there's murder involved and a little hint of premarital sex and young sheltered minds might be badly influenced and parents choose to be offended by books like this of ALL THING ...more
