I remembered liking the main character Mattie a whole lot when I read this book the first time a couple of years ago. And this hasn´t changed one bit. She is such a unique and memorable character.
This time around, though, I had some issues with the pacing of the story. It takes forever until they are actually on their way.
So it´s still a good book with a great main character, but its not quite as good as I remember it to be.
