Review of the Day: Click (Part Two)
(CONTINUED FROM PART ONE)
Notes on the Cover: Wow. If this is the new cover for the book, I’m torn. I’d only seen the cover slapped on the ARCs until now and I was going to have this rip-roaring view of what was beautiful but wrong with it. Then I see that Amazon.com is displaying this cover instead. That can only mean that Scholastic felt the way I did and came up with this instead. It’s not as classy, but it might get more kids to read it. Oh, and FYI, it’s almost impossible to find this book on Amazon. I had to plug in the ISBN in the end. Ditto the actual Scholastic site. I’m afraid the title of this book may make it very difficult to find online. Scholastic would do well to amend this problem pronto.
First Line: “I can’t believe you’re not going to open it!” Jason said.
