I really liked adventuring along with the kids in the library! There intelligence amazed me. xD Sierra made me a little jealous with her knowledge of books and authors! I loved Kyle - he reminded me so much of Charlie in Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Migual was great... so nerdy. Haley kind of annoyed me at the beginning but I grew to like her near the end. Charles was irritating and stuck-up… that's about all I can say about him. Andrew was just... well, babyish. ;p
I loved every minute it of this book and I REALLY want to read the other books in this series. Mr. Lemoncello is a nut... so much like Willy Wonka! It's a super easy read and it'll grab you clear at the beginning!
Do I recommend this? Yep, totally!
There are a few swear words.
The book is funny, heartwarming and engaging. I flew through the chapters eager to find out the next challenge (and add another title to my TBR) and see how the characters would react. The 12 kids who begin the challenge are quickly whittled down to a hardcore few that are a varied and interesting bunch. Led by Kyle they are determined not to give up. Whilst I was sure their resilience would pay-off, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book. A great story that I would recommend to any MG readers.
Sometimes feels too clearly written by an adult, with knowledge and references that there is no way the target audience or book characters would know.
