My 7th grader s recommendation 3.5 Stars It s a good adventure story Good and bad, happy and sad are all in there It is a bit slow at first even though the story moves along nicely, and it picks up and develops really well towards the end. What a cute, fun read Incredibly, incredibly imaginative and the characters were all so quirky and unique Definitely a book for children I found at times with many clich s but that doesn t mean I didn t enjoy Lyssa s adventure and the lessons she learnt along the way I actually got quite teary eyed towards the end This book was EXTRAORDINARY It was so whimsical, and well thought out I loved every bit of it. C fiction, teen, fantasy, adventure, girl attempts to find deceased mother, save house. Zip is a scooter the protagonist rides from Seattle to Texas to save her childhood home The story loosely parallels the Odyssey in the characters and obstacles she encounters along the way The adventure is a bit too cutesy and the ending is too perfect for my liking, but middle schoolers will probably love it. It was a good book It was full of adventure, magic, and a little bit of mystery I recommend this book to adventure lovers.
