Hey, I also think it's about time we had something like you said "cool" to read. Instead of always having to think so seriously and about the dreads of what life sometimes has to offer. After all we are still kids and are allowed to read fun stuff too. I love reading fun mystical stuff like Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. Oh yeh, and I love Stephen King novels! Right now I'm reading "The Ring", you know the Japanese novel(the manga version) that inspired the scary hit movie. And boy is it scary but like I said I like fun stuff, scary stuff included in the "fun stuff" category. This sounds like it's gonna be full of magic and surprises and most of all very cool. So Inuyasha, how'd you find time to join the teen book club with doing your anime cartoons and comic books?
This is a great book!!! I will most definatly check this out, just the blirb for the book is interesting!!!
Down to bussiness,
What's with the charm that his Uncle gave him, pretty interesting, bet it's magic. I think the older brother is a little bit spoiled, maybe not though.
Can't wait for the next installment!!!!
It does sound like the necklace is magic I also think that Alfredo is gonna have an important choice to make soon 'cuz at the end of it, his father said something about making up his own mind when he understands. What I want to know is what he has to decide.
Yeah I love Inuyasha comics and I love the show. I like all sorts of anime and manga. Do you? I also love Japan and I have favorite Japanese singers like Gakuto, Ayumi Hamasaki, and D-A-I. You can send stuff to my email too.
This book seems really interesting and cool. They left off at a good part and I can't wait to see what happens tomorrow. Sayonara!
This is the best book so far. The only other book I seriously liked was the story of the little girl who was adopted and her singing voice. In a way, they're similar cuz both about kids with a talent no one gets.
I can't believe a huge fire's started and alfredo feels it! Is he a part of it? It says in the blurb that his family dies in a fire. Could Alfredo be responsible? The suspense is stifling! I love It!!
I, too, like the book. It's a nice departure from some of the other weekly reads. I liked the fact that Giorgio could love his music and still love parts (the bakery ovens) of his old life. I can't wait to meet the uncle. He sounds interesting.
