it was amazing

Oh my word! I was drawn in from the first sentence!! It felt a little like 1984 to me, but that was fine. As a reading teacher, I kept thinking about how good this book would be to teach how to make predictions, explain cause/effect, and to really stimulate my students' thinking regarding possible endings to the book.

I will say that I wish that the author had not left the ending so open for interpretation! I guess, though, that this is why this book is so powerful.

I'll probably use this book as a read aloud next year.
