I got this for my 10 year old grandson, by ordering it in advance, and he loves it, just as he did the entire series to date, I had no idea what he could see in a book with such a title, but I found out when he asked me to go to the movie with him. Just a wonderful story of kids growing up (a boys coming of age) and learning from their mistakes and the bullying of the bigger kids. He let me know weeks in advance of its release date that it would be coming out. After its release, he reminded me almost daily he did not get it yet, since I promised to get it for him. If there was a problem at all with this book, it was that the delivery date was far past the availability date, and his anxiety made him sad he had to wait for it. He knew his Grandpa would not let him down.
