Maureen Johnson is a inspiring, funny author that is touching the hearts of many your readers of today. She is personally one of my favorite authors. This book is full of funny irony and twist and turns on every page. Scarlett is a well thought up character that anyone can feel an attachment to, along with every other character. This books is also a part of a new series that maureen is writting. I cant wait to get a hold of the next one. you can also look at an interactive map of scarlettes journey: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=102312066307931969077.000442d6d06efbd923692&z=13
