This is a great fiction book. It's technically young adult literature, and you'll find it in the kids section of any bookstore. However, don't let that fool you! It's actually a really fabulous book. And it's the first book of a trilogy! So if you love it, you get two more books to read. This really is a great book, and an easy read. If you are bogged down and need a stress free book, this is a great choice.
