My Review:   
This book kinda side swiped me. Let me explain. I have just started reading a little more of young adult genre which actually in some ways I have always thought with most of what I was reading I read when I was younger and loved then as much as I love now. In my opinion, I always try to read good clean books. So with all that being said to label this one as Young Adult, well I love it. 

I will say at this time I only had a few things, actually two things that was hard for me with this book. One it  has a lot characters so I am not going into each one, except for Nick. Our infamous Copernicus H. Stringfellow aka Nick was one who did not want to be seen or known or what he could and was doing. 
What an idea, someone who did good but didn't want to be known for it? I love that part. 

The second thing was I had a little hard time staying connected with all the characters and making sure that I could relate back to the complete story.

There was mystery, abuse, intrigue, all kinds of ADVENTURE!! And come on, TWINKIES and Nutrients... oh boy.... don't want the kids to read this one (just kidding) But really found myself laughing really hard on this one due to in my day.. Twinkies was it!!

Author Lorin Barber is going to go far with this kind of writing in my opinion. I will be looking for a second book for this one. 

So due to the above I am giving this book a Breath of Life Rating of:

    Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. The opinions are mine. And your opinion may differ.
