I won a free copy of this book through a Goodreads Giveaway.
I picked up this book because I was looking for something light and funny after the events of last weekend. This book fulfilled that requirement and while the humor was a little juvenile in parts, that's to be expected for a book aimed toward middle-grade aged children. What made me rate it so highly was the message in this book, which I didn't expect. With all the xenophobic rhetoric that's being thrown around it's extremely relevant and I'm glad to see acceptance of others being pushed so heavily in a book aimed toward the middle-grade crowd. I needed that after last weekend.
