  1. This sounds like a different storyline that the students will enjoy. I’m always looking for books with original ideas since so many of them are similar.

  2. I just got this book with my last book order but have not had a chance to read it. Thank you for this review as now it is on my nightstand! I ordered it because I read if you had readers who like “Amulet” series, they would like this. And for the strong female main character to attract more girls to the graphic novel section. Now, I can’t wait to read it.
