Wow!! What a ride!! This book was so good, it was hard to put down. Filled with action, friendship, and love, Westerfeld has absolutely outdone himself! This book was easy to read, yet it kept you thinking about it for days on end. Props to the author. I read it in two days and loved every minute of it!! Sadly, it ended and it took my two weeks to get the second book. That was bad!
