Sweetness at the bottom of the pie

I am a 14 year old and I found this book fun and enjoyable. From the moment I read the first page I was captivated by the book. After I had read it I wanted to read more so while waiting for the other books I read sweetness at the bottom of the pie 3 more times and for me it was different each time I still got scared when something bad happened and I couldn't wait to start on the next books. I hope Alan Bradley continues to write amazing books just like these ones!
