's review

it was amazing

I absolutely loved this book. It's so hard to find a book to recommend to a middle school boy. Well this is it! It has everything, adventure, hilarity, thought provoking circumstances. Gosh darn it, it made me think about what I would do in Fisher's situation.

I'm not going to go into the specifics of the story, but I am going to say the characters were fantastic. The originality and voice of each character was superb. I know i'm gushing incoherently, but it is rare for me to find a middle grade boy book that isn't just people running and hiding and shooting each other. This book has substance....but it's so good the kid reading it won't even realize they could be learning, and thinking. I'll be hand-selling this book like mad.

I can't wait to finish it. Greg Van Eeckhout writes seamlessly making you never want to put down the book. Look at me gushing and I haven't even finished it yet!"
