This is a fast-paced, engaging story that has lots of Cajun culture woven throughout. I think the author does a nice job targeting this for the level 2 learner– past tense, straightforward sentence structure, and good blend of narration and dialogue. There are many scenes in this book that will be great for Reader’s Theater or to act out in class if reading it as a whole group novel. I hope the author is working on a sequel!
