The book is very interesting all together. In a way one could see this book as a message of light and hope. It makes you feel so good in a way that not many books can. And although it does get a bit boring and stretched out at times, it’s…

This book is a very amazing read for a dystopian novel. I think the reading level is very simple and it can be easily read by a grade 6 and up. I read it in grade 8 so I wasn’t really interested because the vocabulary level was so simple,…

An interesting concept that is well-written, but not terribly full of conflict. I don't know why, but everything seems to resolve too easily. Otherwise, a nice read with good characters and messages.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I love the way things don't always go exactly like planned, to create an unexpected ending. GREAT Job Jeanne DuPrau!

This book was good. I liked how the author wrote from both of the protagonists perspective. Also, I like how it was very descriptive. Overall, I thought that this was a very good book.
