I loved the first book in the sequence, but this second book is a completely different genre. Frankly, I wouldn’t have guessed that it was written by the same author. It has far too many just-so scenarios, and too much lying by the main character. I have no idea why this book won the Newbery Honor.
No, I don't think I will.
As with the first book, Alex Jennings does an excellent job. Too bad the story itself wasn’t worth his talents.
Disappointment. Not disgust, but almost.
