I really liked how the main character (Joy) was a little on the plump side, you don't see that very often in books & with myself being a rather plump woman it was really nice getting to read about a character who was not a skinny supermodel type. I am looking forward to book 2. I will recommend this to my daughter here in about a year, she will be 13 then and I feel comfortable letting her read it then. Oh and I like the little twist with the villain, I won't say what just because I don't want to give it away, but I will say that I never expected her to be that! Keep up the good work Amanda.
