Ken Hmn. Detective stuff is back in style, I see, for the YA crowd (I'm thinking of DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE, which I just read). Nice review. Appreciate the end paragraph for parents and teachers, too (though I think it's hysterical you have to warn parents who might object to "magic"). Ahem. Sorry. I gave DEATHLY HALLOWS a 5, so what do I know...?

Alexandra Thanks!

I happen to have an acquaintance who's daughter is a big reader so I recommend books to her occassionally. They don't allow books with sorcery because of their religious beliefs. I respect that even though my opinion in the matter differs. So I include that not only because I think there may be people here with similar opinions, but as a reminder to myself why I can't recommend a book to this specific kid. :)

BTW, I gave "Deathly Hallows" a 5 too :)

I listened to the audio version which was so excellent I can't imagine if the book would be as good. But yes, some of your students might enjoy this one. The protagonist is a younger girl, but the story is good enough that might not bother them.

I just started "Down the Rabbit Hole" today!

Theresa Milstein My daughter and I loved that quote. It was one of my favorites in the book.
