  1. Worth 2 points, easy, fast and occasionally funny, it could be worth your time. Not worthy to be voted for but if you want 2 points fast and a laugh, then go ahead and read it.

  2. I loved this book. It was an easy read but fun. The story flowed well though I did find it amazing that Laura is such a successful pianist with recordings and travels around giving concerts when she can’t use her feet. I liked the relationship between the two brothers and their aunt and uncle. There was lots of humour which is a welcome addition to the Sakura list.

  3. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was really fast and I literally couldn’t put it down. There were many funny bits in it which cheered up the whole mood of the book. it s a really good book especially when you want a cheerful book.
    The ending, i thought could have been better as in realistic other than that I really recommend this book. I thought it was worth a vote.

  4. I thought this novel was a really fluffy light read. The whole concept of the novel seems rather clique – a kid stays at his crazy relatives’ place over the summer – but the mishaps and events that happen during his stay are quite hilarious. I think we can all relate to this story in the sense that we all have strange family members that we love no matter what they do (though most are probably not as insane as the ones’ in this novel).
