The book had a slow start and Mr. Green spends a lot of time in descriptive prose. My girls were not happy at first, but out of respect for Mr. Green and what he has done for kids I made them ride it out and we were rewarded with his signature excellent writing throughout the rest of the book. The ending was so intense we had to sit in the driveway and run the tape to the end.
