Are the characters believable? Explain.

In some ways they are, and in other ways, they are not. The characters have special powers that people would not have in real life, but other than that, they are believable.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book? Explain.

I would rate this book a 9, because it has a great mix of adventure, mystery and suspense, and there are some very funny parts. Also, the book is well written.
