Read 3 times. Last read April 30, 2012 to June 10, 2012.

This was a fabulous read! Originally I was reading my school's library copy, but I enjoyed it so much that, I bought my own copy half-way through, and returned the book to the library in the hopes that someone else would pick it up and discover this very imaginative world.
Upon beginning this book I had some doubts, I've had bad experiences with self-published books before, and the writing seemed a little over-the-top at first. But quickly the story-line drew me in, and I realized that the excesive use of "smart" words was actually part of the world that these sisters created. Quickly I began to enjoy the play on words and the quirky characters, I absolutely love the originality of the story, characters, and just the entire concept!
The only weakness, it that in the beginning of the novel, I thought there were a bit too many unnecessary exclamation marks and itlicized words. But that's just detail, that was far from making me put down this book.
I definitely recommend this to everyone who loves creativity. Don't let the size of this book overwhelm you! It is worth every page!
I cannot wait to see how this is going to play out in the sequel!
