    " Yes this book is more directed to a teen or young adult, but I found it quite charming. Sometimes you just need a fun and easy read! I found myself wanting to go to the library too. Great story, fun narrator. I would highly recommend this book for a family read! I think I'll get a copy for my nephew! "
