    So I rated this book 3.5 stars. Don't get me wrong, this is a REALLY good book but I USED to be in LOVE with fantasy novels. Now I'm kind of a little older and I've been reading less Middle Reader Fantasy (this is the first fantasy novel that I've read in like, a year), and more Young Adult novel...

    REVIEW FOR IN A GLASS GRIMMLY AND A TALE DARK & GRIMM: Hansel and Gretel is not just breadcrumbs and evil witches. There's more to the story than that. Same with Jack and Jill.

Though it isn't entirely true story, the author, Jack Gantos, used his name for the main character and some characte...

    Hi, and I hope you will enjoy my review of Year of the Book. I don't understand why people are saying sort of negative things about this book.
