I actually read this to see if it would be appropriate for my daughters. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. They come home from school and I hear about all the high school drama and I cringe. I'd never want to go through that again (seems like it's gotten way worse with the advent of the internet and social media). I really enjoy the trio and I'm already half-way through the second book. I hope the series continues past the third book. I'm telling my daughters how fun these books are and I'm hoping they'll like them as much as I did.
