  • “James Patterson’s facile writing and Evan Rachel Wood’s expressive, wide-eyed reading make this entrée for the teen audience a remarkable success…Wood has all the slang and colloquial pacing down pat.

The abridgment is smartly done, and Wood keeps listeners’ attention.”

      " This was an awesome book! The author made it seem like I was with them in the book! I also like how theres a puzzle that needs to be solved and slowly some questions are answered but more questions arise. I also love the adventure and the danger they face, but I love more the twists that some up in the book. "

      " I wasn't sure if this book was gonna be any good or not, but I had heard people on the internet talking about it a while back and decided to check it out. I bought a copy and it only took me one day to read. But not because it was good. It took me one day to read because a) it was really easy, and b) I just wanted to get to the end of it so that I could start a better book. I didn't like it very much, although I think the idea is good, I just didn't really like the style of writing. "
