Series: Narratives of Empire (#5)
this was a surprisingly well written book! It was a last minute grab to read and even as an adult, I can appreciate this story. It is perfect for the 5th-8th grade reading levels. Laney is very easy to relate to. I don't think anyone likes have to up and move away from their friends and what is...
A deeply turgid read. Vidal never failed to take himself very seriously and that's how he approached his fiction too. A shame, because the project is worthy, it just needed a much lighter touch.
