I Didn't Get The Purpose
First of all, the cover needs re-working.
I have always loved learning about other’s cultures, countries, folk lore, etc. it doesn’t matter what it is, I find it fascinating. This book does more than that, it not only shares a piece of what is different and interesting in each country but also shows that we have similarities as well, that we all dream.

Books can take you on adventures to faraway places, real or imagined.
How Do You Maintain This?
I understand what the author is trying to say, but if her points are not your natural inclinations then how would this be of value to you?
I thought the author did a fair job in the opening for a YA fantasy, but then comes Chapter 1 and it seemed to degenerate before my eyes.
Unfortunately, even though I'm a Christian, the content wasn't for me.
What a delightful middle-grade mystery for about age 12.
The information in this book is very simplistic and, quite frankly, a little naïve.
Not At All What I Was Expecting
I almost didn't read this because the cover isn't at all appealing, but fortunately the body of work is outstanding.
Falls Short of its Potential
The main protagonist, Gwen, is not a detective by trade, she's a college student.
Unique and Well Written
Most times the authors of these types of novels can't stretch their imagination far enough to create a genuinely unique fantasy.
...that had me engaged at the start.
Difficult to Fathom
There are 12 books overall in this series and I am looking forward to adding a few more to my own modest collection.
What an exceptionally written book with amazing methods for bettering yourself as a person and learning to overcome those attributes that are holding you back from becoming the amazing person you're capable of being.
I Wasn't Certain...
...how to put everything down succinctly about this book because there are just way too many issues that need addressing before this can be a book worth reading. Where to start?
This book was extremely well written and the information proved very valuable.
