I was enjoying this story right up until the ending. I'm not sure how I would have ended it, but it sure wouldn't have been as abruptly as the author did. It almost seems as though his editor was pressuring him for the book to be finished, so Collier wrapped it up briefly and neatly and sent it off to be published. I was very disappointed, and I'm sure a lot of middle grade students will be as well.
Recommended (if you don’t mind rushed endings) for grades 5-8.
