I actually found this a bit boring, but it was well-written as well as very original. I tried to get my mom to let me read this when I was seven years old, she said no, I tried again when I was nine, she said no again, and I tried yet again when I was thirteen and she finally said yes. After reading this book I honestly don't know what she was afraid of, and I think the only reason I found it boring was because I'm older now and I don't find it as interesting as I would've found it when I was ten or eleven years old.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a simple read, but fun. Kids who like their books on the scary and odd side would like this.

This was a very interesting book to read. It shows how some people are brave and courageous enough to suck it up and help other people even when they themselves are in danger. A very touching book, and very enjoyably, though slightly dark at times.

This book shows how some kids are lonely but when they have people supporting them they can do whatever they want to. With a touch of horror and hilarity this book is definatly one that you should read.
