I thought this book was very well done, with such a severe subject, I believe this book stayed permanently interesting. The character development was super good and the plot was well written. However, I found that like many great books, the ending was unsatisfying and over in an instant. This book was very good, and I recommend it to fans of dramatic adventure.

Very well written; sensible, sensitive approach to some very serious subjects - like death - plus something that is lacking in much juvenile fiction: character development.
It was a pleasure to read.
Sequel? I look forward.
