I read the 5 first Paragraph. Its was not interesting. Usually by reading a few paragraph you can tell if its going to be a GREAT NOVEL. I don't think its a good novel. I find it boring and I thought it would of been promising but the main character is more of a boring dreamer with nightmares.

A must read for all high school students. Noni Carter's young voice and her defining character Sarah has a personality that transcends the boundaries of time.
