Great Book But Glitchy File

Excellent book but the actual file seems to be very glitchy—getting a lot of blank pages and duplicate pages.

Quirky

A quirky read more than anything. Great middle school reading material with lots of incomplete thoughts and a story that grows tedious.

Wow!

It has been a long time since I have read a novel that I could not put down. I was up well after midnight just to learn what would happen next. This book deserves all the awards it has won.
