"I liked how the book was going; it was a good story, even with a little romance. 8/10⭐"
"This book is very creative. I had read The Search for Delicious also by Natalie Babbitt and it is one of my favorite books so when I saw this one I knew I had to read it. The description is fantastic and pulls you into this mystical world. The thought of living forever has many perspectives it can be seen from and I believe this book did a wonderful job at displaying that. I definitely recommend this book. It is a quick read for ages maybe 8+. Though I do feel that no matter how old you are, you will enjoy this book. It is over all a very loveable story. ❤️"
