I did have a difficult time at first because it is written in first person as if the evens are taking place right now (if that makes sense) But once I got that down I was hooked!!! Well, they are making a movie! Go there and you will see the trailer! I have a countdown clock on my google page because I am actually excited about a movie coming out! I have not been to the movies in probably a year and a half!
Well, I decided that I had to read the fist book again before the movie comes out! My Son and I sit down each evening and read one chapter! He reads a page and then I read a page or two and so on! I think it is a great way to get involved in him learning to read! He is so cute, when I am reading aloud to him he corrects me when I goof on a word or skip over a word! I think this is great because it means he is paying attention even when he is not reading! When we get done with our reading for the evening I do make him recap what has happened in that chapter and put it in his own words and we talk about it! He is such a sweet soul and always has a lot of questions and ideas about what we just read!
The books are written for teens and he is 10, so I do think you have to know your kid and know if these books are right fro your kid or not, but I know he is loving the process!
My sister (who works at a library) had to borrow the books from us because there is such a long waiting list for checking them out, but I do think she is even looking forward to the movie.

Oh, if you are wondering ... 48 days, 10 hours, and 55 min till the movie comes out! Oh and it has Stanley Tocci and Donald Sutherland in it! I love Stanley Tocci! He cracks me up!! 'My name is Muerte' hehe (thanks to all who get that one!
Have a great Saturday!
