My eight-year-old daughter chose this book for us to read together before bedtime. The basic premise of the book is interesting, and there are a few scary places, but the book mostly drags. In addition, the ending leaves too many loose ends that lead to the reader being completely dissatisfied. My daughter sums it up when she said, "They never explained whether or not Robbie was guilty. Plus, why was he on the tower in the first place? It's supposed to tell that stuff to make it better."
Too many holes and too little action makes this novel a disappointing read.
