    The book was amazing it was dangers thrilling and adventuress.
    It was even creepy at some points in the book. It felt like I was a little bit blinded when he [Spoiler info deleted — Kate Davie]. All an all it was a very thrilling book.

    I really liked this book, because it’s emotionally touching and I like the style in which it’s written. Habo’s story is great, and you feel like him. It’s a very descriptive book. It is also sad in some parts, and hard to believe this happens in real life. I enjoyed it very much. It is one of my favorite books.

    I think this book was very sad, but that’s what happens in real life. I like how you wrote this book, Tara Sullivan. I like all of that feeling in the book especially towards the middle, but I still really really liked it! So I recommend this book to people that like kind of sad stories.P.S. I love this book!!!

    A powerful story about a part of the world (and people in society) most of us know very little about. Learning about seeing the value within a person and acceptance of differences is critical to the progress of a society. So much to talk about with this book! A great classroom conversation starter.

    I love this book! Everyone should read it, it is one of the top on this list. Very exciting but sad, because this really happens in our world.

    Haha, it was quite nerve-wracking. But I like books that keep me on edge… 😉

    This one definitely qualifies as edgy! Kate Davie

    So far, Golden Boy is my favorite on the list. I like how it is a fictional story, with many very real elements. The descriptions were very vivid, making the characters seem to come alive, jumping off the pages of the book and speaking to me. Tara Sullivan is an amazing writer!!! c:

    You are made of sterner stuff than I — I was too scared while I was reading it to make notes on the style! — Kate Davie
