I wound up giving this book Five stars.
My son Jamie had read it first and thought parts of the book were like me.
He zipped right through it. I had a book to read first, so I just finished it. I loved it. I read a chapter before sleep each night, looking forward to the book the next night. By the time I was nearing the end of the book, I felt like family. I'm looking forward to the next book that Chris Cander writes. This one was a fun read, and surprised me too. Very nice.
