I enjoyed this book a lot! I loved how very choice made you turn to a different page and that your answers affected the whole group. It was very cool to see almost all the Innerstar Guides throughout the book and see how each of them acted. With each 'ending' to the story, I learned how my choices could affect how other people thought of me and how they reacted as well. You can learn a lot from these books- go and get one!

I liked this book a lot! And after I was finished I learned a lot more about WWII. It has to do a lot with veterans who have come home after the war against Europe is over (however they are still at war with Japan) and have battle fatigue. I liked this book, but it was somewhat predictable towards the end. The book also seems to have lot of different mysteries in one but most of them seem to come up with the same conclusion.

I really enjoyed this book! I learned a lot about the French Court in the 1700s and found out more about the lovely colonial era. I think Cecile really learned a lot about herself through out the book. Though which each death, instead of becoming weaker, I think she actually becomes stronger and more courageous. If you are looking for a good read, pick this one up!
