It was a very pleasant couple hours read; she created likable characters without making them caricatures. Great first book and I look forward to her future works.

A wonderful book! The characters were very real and I fell in love with the main ones. The setting was woodsy and the author gave the story a great feel. I wanted to be there! It was a real adventure and hard to put down. I'd say it's for all ages.

I really enjoyed this book! I liked how the characters all seemed so real. It felt like one of those times when you have something weird happen to you and you go, “What if...” and your mind starts coming up with cool ideas. I couldn't stop reading it!
