I don't even know where to start, this book is so cool, it mashes up so many different stories that can keep you reading this book just to see what comes next. But don't forget the main story line because that will have you reading pass your bedtime. The story is wonderful and the characters work so well together, and it is a book that will even hold a reluctant readers interest. I really hope there is a sequel.
