⭐⭐⭐ out of 5
Just finished reading this book and it's not as good as the other reviewers make it out to be unfortunately. It's slow to start and doesn't really pick up the pace or excitement. There's very little reason for British tweens to keep turning the pages and there are too many reasons for putting the book down and never picking it up again.
I'm proud of the author for putting her work out across the Atlantic and maybe American tweens would find it more interesting, but I can't give it above 3 stars unfortunately.
