"You can choose what you believe, Shuffler, but you can’t change what’s true."
The first in a series of upper elementary to middle grade adventure/fantasy books, I decided to pick this up in between book club reads in the hopes that I could convince the boys to read them too. So far, to no avail, but I enjoyed the easy read and would recommend it as a read-aloud or reading assignment if your kids are into this kind of genre! The writing is not too difficult but the story line is a good one.
