    2. I read this as an adult and really liked it. I am going to recommend it to my niece.I liked the variety in kids and adults behaviours. Sometimes the kids are just plain mean and sometimes the adults are. I liked the mystery and the real fear the kids had in the middle of it. I love scholastic!
