Excellent!! Looking forward to book 2 now!

This book was one of the choices on my daughter's summer reading list for middle school. I started listening as well so we could talk about it. I got hooked very quickly. It reminded me of a younger version of Robin Hood or the Hunger Games series-how one person can make a difference. I would definitely recommend it to others. I look forward to reading book 2 now to find out what happens next.
