Well, after I finished The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher, my girls came home from a long few days at their dad's house while I recovered from surgery. It was a successful re-entry, but it required my attention, so I didn't get as much reading done last night as I hoped. However, I did finish Wolf in White Van last night around 10 pm, which was a victory. I've read far more than I actually thought I would in this readathon, and I am loving it! But on to Wolf in White Van.
I read it because it was on the Alex Awards list for this year. Or at least, that was what caused me to put it on hold. In the meantime, I had just read Ready Player One and loved it, and I thought this would be another book about role-playing games that I would like. But... I didn't get it. There weren't enough of the things that I was interested in, and I felt like I just didn't get it. Maybe if I was reading it more slowly, or not trying to read it while the girls watched The Goonies and I kept my eye out for scary scenes, or ... maybe it just wasn't my kind of book. All that to be said - I kept reading to finish it because I wanted to know more about Sean, and what had happened to Lance and Carrie. I just wasn't satisfied with what there was.
