And Zee waited his turn and tried with all his might not to run from the room, from this moment, from the utter certainty of what was about to happen. He tried so hard to keep his hand on her shoulder, firm and true. He tried so hard to keep from dissolving completely, so his grandmother would see him solid and present and strong. Never doubt that. You never doubt Grandmother Winter.

One of the things I hated as a kid, and still do, was how books intended for that age group seem so condescending. The writing style of this book was NEVER that and included a well-advanced vocabulary and a great sarcastic wit in the humor that kept me entertained - even as an adult. When Zee meets the new English teacher, Mr. Metos, they discover the source of the strange illness, which involves a war over the Kingdom of Hades. Yes, the Greek gods are alive and well, and the entrance to Hades lies just beyond a door marked "No Admittance" in the Mall of America!
This book was a little slow in the beginning. I was also hoping for a great change to come about in Charlotte. Zee seems to find an inner strength, but Charlotte stays mostly the same. I was hoping for more of a Percy Jackson readalike, but this was just okay for me, a nothing-out-of-the-ordinary fun, clean read. But this book is fantastic. The kids act like kids, they think like kids - but not like stupid kids. Like I remember thinking and acting. The danger is really, really real, and scary, and the plot is intriguing, and I am dying to know what happens.
I hate cliffhangers. Also, did I mention that I love Charlotte Mielswetski? She is one of the best middle-grade heroines I have ever read. Great book. It is going on my favorites list. I cannot recommend it enough. It has to be one of my favorite books ever!!! I know some people dont like it because its " creepy " yes it is creepy but thats what makes it suspenceful! The writing style is great, and the book for me was easy to get through. I found it to be funny at times too. I grew really attached to the charecters.
Charlotte I found i had alot in common with. Zee was very interesting and I really liked the kind of person he was.
Mew I found to be very interesting and I really This book was so amazing! Mew I found to be very interesting and I really wanted to know how she fitted in with the story. I like the way how all of the diffrent parts of the story fits in with each other. Yes it does take time to pick up but alll of the details make the story even better. I truely have no clue how people even try to give a bad review on this book because it is so amazing that i find that to be almost impossible. So extraordinary
