Mandie's Thoughts – My daughter is 7 but is in 3rd grade. I was a little apprehensive because the Nate is 10 and wasn't sure if it would be appropriate for her but he's in 4th grade so I decided we'd give it a try.
She loved the cover right away and told me it was HILARIOUS. We'd sit on the couch reading and she would crack up.
I think she really connected with this book because she is a huge day dreamer and so is Nate. His imagination helps him deal with everyday life.
The book is meant for 9 – 12 but my daughter read and enjoyed it with ease.
My little book nerd stated she wants more.
We received a product for our honest review no other compensation was received.
