I read this book with my middle school students and the LOVE it! Caroline Cooney got it right again. She is so good at writing stories that are true to life and could be true but are still intriguing. This one has you on the edge of your seat till the very end. I always have students read about Blood Diamonds prior to reading the story to help the understand the characters behavior better.
It opens their eyes a bit to what good lives they actually have and to become more aware of situations in other countries. I doubt that my students will ever downplay the slaughter and call them Conflict Diamonds after reading this.

I had figured out what was happening well before it happened and it frustrated me because of the choices that the characters were making.

Its one of those books you cannot put down. You have to keep reading it to find out what is going to happen. I actually brought it for my nephew's reading assignment but read it myself.

Could have been a good book, but I was not a fan of the author and the way she wrote it.
It started slow but picked up quickly. Great ending. Good for anyone who wants to educate their child on worldly issues that affect the US.
