Review: This was a fun read. Again, I liked where the characters were going and they were developed well. The story was well written and funny. I also liked the plot and it would be a fun read for middle graders.
However, I did think that the world building was too in depth for this book and it was a bit over the top. I also thought that the voice was a bit off in this book and it came off as someone imitating a middle grader.
Verdict: It was good!
