Everything about this book is brilliant--the way the characters talk, the things the characters do, and the way the author wrote it all...I love it. Wish the library had more of her books.

SUPER AMAZING BOOK!!!! There should totally be a law that says that everyone has to read her books! Best author in the WORLD! But it's really sad that the library only carries some of her books and not all of them. :(
