Book Review

This book was good and interesting at the same time. The author could of added a little more detail. The thing i really liked about the book is that they gave a lot of detail of the main character. One thing that i disliked was that it did not really gave a lot of detail with the conflict. This book also had really interesting parts but some parts were a little boring. Over all i did like the book it had really sad, but interesting.
