This is the first book in a series for teenagers and I’m curious to read it to see what it will be like. There is one negative thing that I noticed from the beginning and is the price: for a book of just over 150 pages it seems a bit expensive. I hope it will be a good book otherwise this additional element won’t be in its favor. You can find this book in all on-line stores, including Amazon (I have reported the prices of Amazon .Com and .It).
