Mediocre at best
I only enjoyed chapters 6 and 11. The rest were boring. Find yourself a more joyful book for your Christmas season reading.
Most stories in this in this collection either didn't make sense at the end or had many things unanswered.
I didn't like it. I'm not interested in teenage live stories. Too much whining.
