When I saw this book's gorgeous cover and read the glowing reviews, I got this book for my kids so we could discover along with the Finkle kids the secrets they stumble upon in Finkleton. After reading the synopsis to my daughter she told me outright that it sounded very predictable. She didn't seem excited as I was to read it along with me. Nonetheless, I snuggled with my kids on the bed and began reading. The first chapter was promising but by the third chapter, my son told me there was too much dialogue and not enough action.
I will count this book toward the following challenges: Middle-grade Book Challenge
Disclosure: Thanks to the author and ReviewtheBook.com for sending me this book for review. I was not compensated in any other way, nor told how to rate or review this product.
