  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    The story is amazing!!! I love how the book is short to encourage new/young readers to start reading. Yet so much happens in the book that you feel it is a big book. It is full of many different events that vary from excitement to drama to action and adventure. I love how the book is suitable for all ages. Once you start reading this book, you won’t put it down until you finish.

    I really love the characters and how unique they are. I would love to see illustrations of each of the characters. I absolutely love the cover illustration. Seeing the book as a movie or animated film would be great. It would be exciting to have a sequel to this book.

    The story is very inspiring and the readers can definitely relate to it. It is about finding your role in the community. I don’t want to spoil the story further so I will leave the rest to the reader.
