liked it

I received [The Lodestone] for free in exchange for a review. Overall I enjoyed the story. I did think, however, that The Lodestone was not written at the level of young adult literature, but more at the 9-12 age group. It was very simple, very short, and did not deal with a lot of the themes that tend to characterize YA literature. I felt like it could have included more detail and more depth. The book ends up feeling more like an outline of a fantasy novel instead of a finished product. The reader doesn't really connect with the characters because for the most part they aren't complex or well-developed. I will probably end up giving it to my 11-year old to read, who I expect will enjoy it, and then find it immediately forgettable.
