I enjoyed the book, though I wish I read it before One Day You're Gonna Die. I'm still not sure if I'm drawn by the author, format, or story time frame. And Charlie D was as likable as I remembered. I especially like how inspiring he is to others. In any case, I can certainly see how this would be a good book for reluctant readers, etc. I look forward to reading the third in this series, The Shadow Killer, due out in September.
