  1. Woohoo! this book was exciting. I told the people at book club, it was like crack. I had a really hard time putting this book down. I really enjoyed her characters and the plot line. The Uncle had great characterization. Very enjoyable book =]

  2. I agree it was exciting, the book was very well done and the way the Uncle’s mind worked was totally sick. I felt some of the emotions could have been stronger and the story could have gone on longer, but it was still fantastic and the way it was written was very different from similar books. Two thumbs up. Don’t know that it’s a Printz book but definitely Teen’s Top Ten.
