Read the first chapter:
I thought the book was overall engaging and I like your writing style. There were a few chapters which moved abruptly from one scene to another, so I was a bit lost until it made sense with more information. I thought the character developed well. He started out as a naïve 11 year old, and grew throughout the story to a brighter more mature individual. True life experiences came to mind causing a chuckle and warm fuzzies when reading of some of the antics of the characters.
It was exciting. I couldn’t put it down. I know my grandkids will like it.
It grabs the reader. There was one page I found to be confusing. I liked the characters.
