this is a very good book because it is very well writen. =)
This book is probably good for ages 10 and up because there is gambling and a little other things that are more for older kids. Little kids wouldnt understand.otheriwse this book is great to read because it has reality mixed in with fictional things. I enjoyed this book because it was a chinese related topic and chinese always have wonderful family traditions and stories. In this book there was one special story from chinese tradition. READ THIS BOOK!
