really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult
Read from December 26 to 27, 2011

Oh, this was a good story! It was late and I should have gone to sleep but I didn't want to put it down last night. Finally conked out and finished it this morning.

Mostly fantasy (truly!) with a dash of some history thrown in. CAN'T wait for the next one.

Only ... one thing that I will have to think about. Our public library had it in the juvenile section. And it mostly is ... only not to spoil anything but there is some romance in there. It's definitely secondary to the main plot ... but I'm still not sure. If I get it for our school collection I can guarantee third graders will be picking it up. Some when they shouldn't because they can't read it ... but some really could. It's seriously secondary so I can't believe I'm even wondering about it ... but could they understand the kissing? Ugh. Drives me nuts when other people nitpick about small things in a book. Here I am doing it myself.
