This book may have had the weirdest ending to a book that I've ever read. The story starts out with a bus accident. Then the story flashes back to several weeks before the wreck. A large group of characters who ride the bus is introduced, and then each chapter that follows explains why each one of the characters might become famous. I did like each character and the problems that are introduced about each one, but just as I would get interested in that character and his or her problems, the chapter would end and we would move on to another character.
Without giving too much away, I will say that the ending was a bit of a let down, especially when we find out that there is another chapter of the book that has to be read online. The last chapter does sum up what happens to each character, and the ending has a nice twist, but still pretty odd.

A middle grade mystery and character study with multiple story lines that all come together in the end. I am a J.B. Cheaney fan and really love all of her books. She is a talented writer with a kingdom perspective that I really appreciate. Be sure to go online and read the extra chapter! The book is complete without it, but that last bit of narrative really caps everything off in a beautiful way.

J.B. Cheaney garners more admiration from me with every book of hers I read! Every character is rounded out, every scenario is plausible, every story is engrossing, and everything works together to be touching and thought-provoking. It scares me sometimes, when I see something in a character that I do, but that's what makes it amazing. I highly recommend any of her books.
