14: Chapter 3 Critique
15: Outstanding | Amazing | I loved this book because it was very detailed and had a lot of interesting twists. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen, the story changed and left you amazed that you were wrong. The only thing I didn't like was that there were some moments in the book when it was really boring and uneventful. At those times you just wanted to read on and get to the good part.
