My students LOVE this novel and I love teaching this novel! The students can relate to the teenage characters and the plot keeps everyone engaged because it keeps twisting. I teach this in Spanish 3 and it's a wonderful way to keep the kids in suspense even til the end....it makes them think! One of my faves!
This is one of my very favorite books of hundreds I have for my Spanish 3 students to read. It is written in comprehensible language and is so GOOD!!! Many of the other novels are engaging and exciting but are cheesy and require suspension of disbelief. This is very realistic, but has so much adventure, excitement, drama, plot twists... you MUST read it for yourself! You and your students will love it!!!
