BeBeep Book group, a middle level reading group in Severna Park, Md discussed this book at their July meeting. Six really liked it while two did not. We talked about Jessie's character quite a bit which was well drawn, but felt the setting was a little confusing as were the motivations of some of the adults. The book is well suited for a group because it has good starting points for discussion but proved to be unsettling for some of the children(2children die and a mother puts her child in danger)and I would keep this in mind if choosing the book.Katie(9)thought it was interesting how a 13yr. old had to react in this situation, Emily(10)thought it was good but too unbelievable, Laura(9)didn't think this was a good book for her age and thought the author should have done a better job of describing Clifton.Kelly(8)thought it was scary, Max(9)really enjoyed the way it was written Derrick(10) thought it was a GREAT book and liked to see how Jessie got out of situations, Babette(8)thought it was much more exciting than the regular books she reads, and Lindsay thought the whole reenactment idea was very neat.
