This book was really good! Surprisingly, the whole story takes place in only a few days. I would recommend this book to anyone between the ages of 9 and 13.

Can't wait to read the net book in the series!

This book is like a Wes Anderson movie in middle-grades novel format. I really enjoyed the quirky characters. It does move a bit slow but that's kind of the point, it's about the journey not the destination for sure. It is totally worth the perseverance. There are many interesting little tidbits thrown in throughout that have me desperately wanting to know more. What are Archer's grandparents up to anyway??! All in all, an interesting mystery, many hints of things to come and unique characters make for a great read.
