How did We Like the Story?

My daughter was the one who read Britfield & the Lost Crown. The book is written with the middle schooler in mind. Although my daughter is headed to high school she still enjoyed it. I think any age that can read the book will enjoy this exciting story.

She devoured the book in one day and proclaimed it “really good”. I believe her too because when I saw her bedroom light on at midnight I went in to tell her it was time to go to sleep (summer hours and all) and she turned to me with excitement and said, “This is so juicy!”
