I picked this book up while I was volunteering at the scholastic warehouse sale. It was an especially slow shift. I was looking for something I could finish in an hour or so and this looked half-way interesting. I didn't realize it was part of a series and I don't know if that knowledge would have made the book more enjoyable or not. As it was, I found the book fairly melodramatic and juvenile. I wasn't sure how old the kids were supposed to be until the very end of the book, but I found myself thinking they were much younger because of how they acted. These characters were annoying. They were whiney and I had a hard time relating to their problems and conflicts. The voices were also hard to distinguish from each other and I didn't feel like the kids were fleshed out. Overall it helped pass the time while I was working, but it's not something I really enjoyed.
