This book is great if your looking for a quick read. It is a short with adventure, humor, and a little bit of romance. I would probable give it a 6.5 out of 10. That is probably because it just as magical a plot as I would have preferred. There is a sequel to the book . I haven’t read it, but I do plan too, in the recent future. Nevertheless, this book is an amazing story that has the ability to sweep you off your feet.
