This book is written in verse, and it's probably my first book that I have read that is written in verse...

    I have read many AG mysteries, and this one is one of my top 3. It has everything a mystery needs: action, creepiness, and a ton of heart. It is a great book for anyone who likes a mystery that the author took a lot of passion in writing.

    I am loving this book! It is so unique in that there are two stories being told simultaneously. I enjoy how one is with words and the other with pictures. This book is really making me think and use all of the reading strategies we've learned this year. I can't wait to finish and see if our t...

    The Eye of the Falcon is even better than the last 2 books, but at the end it hints that there WILL be a 4th book. The 4th book will probably be made in 2015 or 2016. I can't wait to read it!
