This is another book that turned out to be geared towards kids. Adults shouldn’t let that keep them from reading it though. It’s an awe-inspiring, gripping, edge-of-your-seat read that practically demands a warm blankey and mug of cocoa to go with it. Suddenly our Chicagoland winter doesn’t seem nearly so bad by comparison.
