wow ok so this is one of the first teen books i ever read i read this for the first time in 5th grade and while even then it was not my favorite it did keep my attenion but you have to take into considerstion i was reading CS lewis at the same time and i mean really how can you even compair the 2? anyway if you cant get you child to read for school this is a simple and short book that they can understand and enjoy it has a happy endding and it has a little comedy thorwn in my mom bought me this book but if you have a child that has a larger comperhention level i would not waste my time with this book they will finish it in a day and never pick it up again (trust me) though this is a great starter teen book for girls who cant stand reading but need AR points for school!
Aquamarine is a good book (or it would not have become a movie) and it is good for young readers. I wouldn't say that it is the best book that I have ever read, for it is a bit childish, but it is still good.
I liked aquamarine, but not enough to give it a very good rating.
