I don't recommend the audio version

I did not care for this one. The story is okay but, the writing seems off and the characters aren't very believable. I did finish it but only because its short. The narration reminds me of a Charlie Brown special. I don't place the whole blame on the narrator though. The writing seems to be a major flaw (for me) but the narration did nothing to improve it, in fact it made it painful to listen to.

I finally had to give up the audible version. I made it halfway through and was 10,000% DONE. I finally switched to the e-book version, and it was better. Still not a great book but WAY better without the narrator that reminded me of one of the kids from Peanuts tv movies.

Sugar And Spice...not

This was the perfect pick for my Sunday afternoon at home by myself. It was fun and not too long so I did get housework done too!

decent first book maybe?

I am torn in this review. I had a hard time listening to what sounded like the voice of a 13 year old girl or at least the cliche of what one sounds like. The story was okay but a different narrator would have made it better perhaps. There seems to be no emotion throughout the reading that would draw a person in.

Awful, just Awful

This book was a complete surprise. First that it was published, second that it is a series (there are more!).

Saying it is awful is putting it lightly. I checked and double-checked to see if this was a teen book. I could not find it listed as that. However, it is the stupidest book I have ever read. That includes books read to the kids at bedtime.

Final analysis, don’t read.

Written by a 12-year old?

The idea was good, setting and characters also but there the goodness ended. The relations, story, conversations were unbelievably naive, unnatural and plain stupid.
