Check out the potential setting of the book!

This book seems like a long book and may be a little intimidating but after you begin you'll be engulfed in to the story. After a slow start it may seem tough to notice the difference between the past and the present, but that is what makes the book so good! You will be a little confused with the style of the book, but it will play in to the whole picture the author establishes.

The book is quite a page-turner and will make you laugh and chuckle many times, I recommend this book as it is very different from many of the books on the AP list and is a new and fun concept to the typical writing style.
