    I reeeaallly loved your book! I did have a question about your publishing process. I’m writing a novel of my own, and I was wondering who edited your book and where you found him/her. Thanks,

    Bought this as a Christmas present for my daughters and the oldest could not put it down. She got on the 25th and finished it on the 26th. I think she loved it. No…she LOVED it. Thank you for sharing your gift!!!

      6th grade is totally appropriate for reading this book. I have a girl in 7th grade who read the book when she was in 6th an adored it.
