Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Vivian rated it ★★★ and said “My teenage daughter LOVES these books. In fact, back when she was eleven, she and her then teen-aged older sister both read the entire series in just a week. I’ll admit, it is clever, and different from the movie in good ways (although I enjoyed the movie).”
Bekka rated it ★★★★.
Cathy rated it ★★★★.
Valerie rated it ★★★★.
Miranda rated it ★★★★.
Patty rated it ★★★★.
Johnathan rated it ★★★.
