This book has not got any pictures therefore it has to be very descriptive and the author has done a very good job. I t also has a lot of suspense that makes you want to read more. I would recommend this book for confident readers because this book is aimed at 13-15 year olds and I read it when I was 8. So READ THIS BOOK
