My son is 8 years old, and we have been reading this as a bed time story over the last couple of weeks. I've never seen him more excited to go to bed. We finished it tonight and afterward, he asked if he could download the next in the series to my Kindle from his allowance.
The story revolves a bookish kid, Wes, who is often bullied by a classmate. During a field trip to the town library, he and his crush, Taylor, fall headfirst into some adventures due to the library's magical attributes. There's some feel good moments, some lessons learned, and mystery woven through the story. There were a couple parts in particular where my son got to giggling, which gave me the giggles, so I can say we enjoyed it thoroughly. However it is intended to be a series, as the ending is quite the cliffhanger.
We will definitely be downloading the second in the series!
