Story: I found this book to be very interesting. I think this is the first book in a series. I could be wrong on that though. I am curious to see where it goes if it winds up being a series though. This book was a wild ride. Just when things were calming down and I thought I had it figured out, I was thrown through another loop. I was totally here for it though.

Characters: I really can’t remember the characters names. I’ll be honest, there were a few times I got the names mixed up. I do know that it was a group of boys and their parents. There were other adults sprinkled through the book as well. As this is a young adult novel, you mainly see the plot through their point of view. They do play a strong part though. All of the characters had really strong personalities. Good and bad. I only wish I could have seen a bit more points of view from all of the characters.

Critiques: None

Final Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. It is pretty fast-paced and action packed. This is a middle grade novel, but I think it would be enjoyable to people of all ages. I know I did, and I am very much an adult. I am thankful that I came across this book. I look forward to reading other books by this author.
