First of all you have to ask yourself this question. How old am I? If the answer is above 10 please put the book down! You are embarrassing yourself. I would have said 11 but then it occurred to me that today’s tweens are probably a little too mature for this book and though better of it. Yes I'm sure the rest of the books in the series get better and blah blah blah but unless you are reading this as a bedtime story to a small child- just say no. I wish I had.
