it was amazing

It's been a while since I read The Great Gatsby and I haven't seen any of the more current movies of it to help refresh my gmemory of the plot and characters so I read The Duke of Bannerman Prep just hoping for a good entertaining story, something that would keep my interest. I got that and more. As I read, I wanted to know what was going to happen with the characters and their relationships with one another and then how their issues would all get resolved. I like that I'm still wondering how characters are doing and what's going on with them because it feels like each one of them has a life to continue living rather then just being there to play their role in the story and then vanish from existence when the novel ends. I like the lessons learned and the teachers who taught them. As choices were presented to the characters I found myself often wondering if I would have done the same thing in their shoes. This is a quick read with humorous and snappy dialogue and just the right amount of descriptive detail to help paint a picture in your mind of what is happening so you are able to focus on the characters and theme. This is a well-written young adult story with life lessons that easily go beyond that age.
