Ratings and Recommendations

I would recommend this book to kids from about grade 4-7. I would rate this book 5 our of 5 stars as I really enjoyed it! At the beginning you are overwhelmed with all of the characters but by the end you recognize the names and can imagine what they look like and know who they are inside.
