Possibly the best in the series.  As the floor number goes up by 13 each bookbook, the story gets better!  This book is all about Andy and Terry in there huge treehouse!  But Andy has a really bad toothache and needs to get the joke writer 1000, the new joke writing pencil!  They have a 2 dollar shop, a 2 million dollar shop and a money making machine!  What could possibly go wrong

I loved this book ! I liked it because it's as fast and pacey as any tv show . It is a captivating story that will quickly take up all of your time . I read this book in one day and if you pick it up for yourself , you will see how easy that is ! 

The characters are tough and gritty , those who you are introduced to at the start are particularly complex and have difficult backgrounds . They're really complex and you have a real sense of having learned something about them at the end . 

This book really says something for the adventure genre , with a slightly different approach to  the post apocalyptic scenario . It keeps these vibes throughout , even through the artificially created environment of the main hunger games throughout , but the most consistent thing is the survival aspects that are there in force throughout the book .
 As with most of the books I read , this book lacks illustrations , but the author is skill full with her descriptions and you are under no illusions as to what katniss is up to. 

This book is an emotional rollercoaster but my biggest emotion was sadness at finishing it !  katniss everdeen is a tough hero but one too really  root for . I loved this book and I feel that every tween/teen should read this  !

I really liked this book !

I liked this book because I am interested in technology and I've never read one so focused on it before . The action is  also pretty Wild from the beginning , so it grabbed from the beginning . The characters are pretty strange at the beginning , linked by a high tech pair of glasses across the world . But , as the story progresses , and they learn too trust each other , you begin to realize that this will actually work ! This book slots neatly into the more modern area of the spy genre , with betrayal , fast paced action and tech all featuring highly . There are no illustrations , but the target audience shouldn't mind . Talking of target audience's , this book is ideal for older readers who will understand the complex topic , and maybe even adults who want to try something new . I enjoyed this book immensely , it made for captivating reading on a rainy summer's evening .
