The story is cohesive and doesn't leave gaps that assume you've read the book.
My only issue was how the parents handled the "no spying." They just tell her to stop but little kids have big imaginations and there would have been a better way to deal with that whole situation.
I enjoyed the parts when you got intrigued. I’m in 5th grade so it’s a little bit to childish for me so that’s why it’s 4 stars not 5. I would recommend this book to weak readers. 3rd grade and under. I chose this rating because it’s just not the right book for me. Besides that it was very interesting and funny.
