Clever title. But I didn’t think the book was very successful. Maybe I’m just not the right age for this book, but I found Paige awfully whiney. I kind of wanted her to stop complaining. I had trouble believing she was actually the age stated in the book because she seemed very immature. I’m not sure if she just bugged me because she was so displeased with her circumstances or what. Either way, I couldn't really get into the story because I found the main character and her actions annoying. I also wasn’t a fan of the illustrations. There seemed to be a slight contrast between them and the story. Definitely a book to skip.
