This is a simply amazing novel. An amazing book.
I've seen people say that it is lacking a real story, but it's also supposed to be a realistic book. And truly, it is. Perkins’ is writing about real life, which doesn't necessarily contain a story or, at least, one that follows the same goals, etc., throughout it.
The writing itself is slightly quirky, and very different from anything else I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Perkins' lovely drawings also add to the fun. Her artist style is fantastic, and it fits the story.

Very creative.

this book was very good. It was confusing at first, but after getting deeper in this book I found that it got easier to understand. I highly recommend this book to readers that like books that you can not put down. I recommend it mainly for girls but really, boys would love it also. Criss Cross is a really good book, and I can not put it down.

I have found that I have trouble with great detail. I sometimes find it hard to picture in my mind, but I think if I read more books like this I will have a better understanding of them. I haven't yet read this entire book, but looking forward to what happens next. I am a little confused in the beginning of the book. I think if I just keep reading it will all fall into place soon. I think after I finish this book that I will probably be a huge fan of Lynne Rae Perkins.
