The review

First off, I loved the underlying themes in this book. From the blend of cultures, to mixed families, bullying, rivalry, and to dealing with divorce this book does a beautiful job of describing it. This book has lots of suspense and many twists. I loved the tenacity of some of the characters. There were lots of laughs and many page turning moments, dying to know what would happen. This is a great middle grade book to read and i think would be good for all to read, only if not just for the tones and the values that can be picked up. The scenes are very vividly written and you can picture them in your head. Great development for characters. Wonderful plot and id love to see more by this author. Rating for a middle grade read 5 stars! I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
