Is it worth it? I get a bit discouraged by the book covers I really don't know how else to explain it.

Isabella Anderson This is a really good series that is definitely worth reading. It also has a good balance of wit and action which are two qualities that make this series amazing.
Glen It's not quite as good as Harry Potter. The dialog in this book is wittier, but the characters are less complex.
Beth I would describe this as a wittier Harry Potter done more in line with Roald Dahl's humor. You can definitely tell it's meant for an early teen demographic based on the storyline, but the dialogue alone makes it worth a read. Plus, it's a concept frequently pointed at preteen boys with a female protagonist.
Dugglyn Carzainia They are the best books ever!!!!!!!!
George Not really. If you want to turn off your critical sense and just be entertained by nearly non-stop action, w/ snarky dialog in between, it's okay. But I've read better in the same vein.
Thalia Grace SECOND FAVORITE SERIES OF ALL TIME! DEFINITELY WORTH IT!
