The first time I read this book I was in 5th grade and it was for a book report. For the first two chapter's or so I just couldn't get into it and was on the verge of picking another book when my mother told me that I shouldn't base the book's worth on the first few pages. So, I listened to her, and I finished it. More than ten years later it is still one of my favorite books. I find myself going back to often, when I have nothing new to read, or when I'm doing a little spring cleaning and happen to find it in a forgotten corner.
