  1. I enjoyed the first half of this book but then it just felt like it dragged on and second least favorite Printz Winner.

  2. I will admit that the first 150 pages flew by with me barely noticing and then it took on a slower (but still firm) pace. Perhaps it could've been shaved down a bit to keep up the initial pace.
