I read this book during 7th grade as a novel of choice. Curiously attracted to the title--as well as the back cover I divulged into this excellent read. I found the concept, plot, and characters beyond interesting and became completely engrossed in the book. Because of the relative ease of the read, it was one of the first books I read that I did not put down immediately, or give up on. The ambiguous, almost terrifying end of the book, just added to the mysterious appeal of the novel. This is one of my favorite novels from my earliar education, and I would re-read it, had I not so many books on my "too read" list.
