I really enjoyed this book. It's my first book from this author and can't wait to read another.
This was a fast read and was certainly serviceable enough. But there were a few awkward plot blips (like a character was supposed to be one place but showed up somewhere else only to have it conveniently explained away later) that took my attention away, and some coincidental happenings that also distracted me.

very good but probably not appropriate for those under 12 because of bad words
