  1. From the description, you'd think this book was about a girl named Prue. But it isn't. Although she's in the book, she's definitely a secondary character. This book is about her "friend" Curtis. They are not really friends as he still draws superheroes which everyone considers childish. What?

    There were a few good parts in this book, but for the most part, I just wanted to be done with it. It was drawn out and reminded me of many other books I'd read, but not in a charming, familiar way, but in a this will never be as good way.

    I've got a student or two in mind I'd like to hand it to, see what they think. Maybe I'm just too jaded?
