I would recommend this book to fellow students due to its nature to present an element of lending itself to a student and group discussion. It is an expressively thrilling story based on emotions and vital decision required to judge a person moral character. Book lovers will find it undeniable and worrying. The novel is redolent of Virginia Walter's Making Up Mega Boy, another book enriched by its ambiguity.
