~> What I like about this book?

The book is fast-paced, well-written. The soft spoken and funny Mac will make you laugh often. Millie’s witty mind will make your brains turn. In the end the book will make you laugh, think and enthusiasm to read the next book in series.

The writing style is similar to the first book. Easy-fluent and very understandable English is used throughout the book making it ideal for the people who wish to pursue reading as a new habit or people like me who always wish to try new books out.

The over again is extremely fabulous. The detailing on the cover is quite unique as well.

~The Improvements meant to be:

– The prediction of story can be made easily (not talking about the end).
– The character details miss out at a few points.
