The book is intended for a younger audience so some of the plot may seem simple or even predictable to older audiences but Night has this way of making the reading experience fun as if you get to travel back to your own childhood to experience this through less jaded eyes.It comes off a bit like Harry Potter meets Cinderella You have the scullery maid who discovers she s not what she thought she was and off to a new magical world she goes Okay so that s taking paraphrasing to the extreme but it [...]
