Roni’s Review:

Okay, so some people love this story…some are not pleased with it. I actually liked it, as did my family. There were some scenes of violence that are definitely unsuitable for little kids, and I would cautions parents against it. Not as great as the first book, freak the mighty, but still leaves one touched by the story. I will continue to read books by this author whenever I have the opportunity, because his writing style is easy to work with, and his characters are always interesting. Thanks for another grand book, Mr. Philbrick!!
