An amazing tween book indeed! A page turner, and is action packed! Maybe not something for the older reader, but it was not targeted at that market. As an experienced reader, I enjoyed it, but I have to say my siblings enjoyed it far more than I did. A good work of fiction, I think it did a great job of introducing my favorite type of literature, science fiction to my siblings.
I cannot wait to see what book the author comes up with next. I loved Neilson's voice in the book. The European touch on this book was a refreshing break from American literature, and my siblings thoroughly enjoyed it too. They say that any good book is an autobiography, and that is displayed very well in this book. It shows her imagination and how creative the author can get
Overall, I would recommend this book to any tween (around 10-13 years of age) but would say that it is an enjoyable book for anyone looking for a fast paced read. I heartily applaud the author, and look forward to other works by her.
