Action. Suspense. Nail-biter all the way!
I spent much of the book trying to decide who was going to be famous. It could be Kaitlynn, the girl who spear-headed a fundraiser to raise money for a local family at Christmas. It could be Shelly, the would-be singer who has secured a slot in the singing camp the coming summer. Spencer is the boy genius who has gotten accepted to space camp. Matthew is the boy who won the science fair at school. Jay is destined to be the local football star. Igor is the trouble maker who loses his snake on the bus. Miranda is the strong best friend who will do anything for her friends, including sharing her writing skills. Bender is the local bully. Alice is the new, quiet girl who is constantly reading rather than making friends.
The book is full of unexpected twists and turns that kept me from putting the book down. It is a great read for students and adult readers ten and over. It is a reminder that things are not always as they appear. It reminds me not to make snap judgments. Igor, for example, has a lot of things happening in his life that many of the students on the bus are not aware of. They would possibly see him very differently if they knew.
