I really enjoyed this book. I liked how the book focused on the love for family and friends. It was refreshing to read a book that did not revolve around the main characters romance. The book was very interesting. I enjoyed how she developed the two different worlds that are similar, but different. This is a great book for male tweens and teens.

So this was a very interesting book. It's refreshing to read a book with so little focus on romance and from a male prospective. She did a wonderful job mixing fantasy with reality. I also enjoyed that while it was at times a little predictable, there were also times when I had no idea what was going to happen.
