This time I picked a page myself by flipping through the book. I picked page 38.
‘Oh my,’ squealed Zoe, her hand flying to her mouth in astonishment. Coco twitched her arms and then her tail. Then she stood up shakily on her furry legs, and jumped into Zoe’s arms. Zoe hugged Coco tightly, and I could see tears shining in the corners of her eyes.
Tonight is gonna be EPIC.
I smile to myself and work in a few hip wiggles in time to the song blaring (or at least nudged to the highest possible volume I can get away with without my mom appearing in my doorway with her arms crossed), as I toss my favorite polka-dot flannel pajama bottoms into my bag. I have to stop dancing to wrestle my pillow into my already jam-packed sleeping bag pouch, and then I jump in place ot get the drawstring to close. Who knew packing for a sleepover could be such a workout?
-1 star for disappointing ending. Let’s start with that. Man that ending was soooo disappointing. And not even that but the thing that happened before it. Let’s just say we had a totally awesome book, awesome scary events happening, and bang, bye bye scariness and hello lame explanation which ruined the book for me. I am just pretending that that didn’t happen and instead we continue with were we left off.
The main character was so-so. I didn’t like her attitude of always trying to scare people. I keep wanting to tell her about the boy who cried wolf, in the end no one believed him. And I am sure that will happen to her to, should she continue with this. In the end there really will be a dangerous situation, and no one will believe her, rather laugh at her, with big consequences.
I did like the whole sleeping party and the whole story that came out of that. But again, that ending. Urgh. It happens quite often in this series, awesome story and then bang, some explanation and gone is the scary mood. 🙁
