I loved this book because it was totally full of action and told alot about the characters.
This book unfortunately it is the last book in the series I think.
This book had a few twist that you might not expect.
First you need to read the rest of the series before you read this though.
READ IT!!
 Have you collected all the books? [Ashley]Does this book give a lot of details about the characters? Is that what you mean? You don't think the author will go any further? What a shame, because I think many kids, including my daughters, love this series. I'm hoping to read the series next summer when I have more time. Mrs. Pardington

this is the second to last book in the series.
I was really excited to read it and found out this book is totally full of action (like that's a shocker!).
although be warned some one dies! it's really sad.
I hope you enjoy this book!
Are all of the books sad? I'm not particularly fond of sad. The cover alone looks suspenseful! Do you think I would enjoy this book, too, despite the sadness? Mrs. Pardington

I really thought this was a boring battle book. The most exciting part is when they fight cannibals that is only about one& 1/2 chapters.
This book is about a girl named patience who has to go to a boarding school for 6 months with one of the worst people ever as her teacher: Mr. Wiggins!
