I started reading this series when I was back in 6th grade, which meant I wasn't that much of an avid reader, which means that I LOVED it back then. So I realized that there was a 10th book, and I actually got it. I suppose that after reading so many 400+ page novels, I thought this book was so short and childish. Unfortunately. I really liked the first book, though!It was a major disappointment. I'm not planning to get any more of this series. I'm done. I would recommend it for Elementary school kids, though!
