My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It wasn’t what I expected – a rich teen criminal that captures a fairy. It was a pleasant surprise, I thought it was going to be more like the Alex Ryder series except that the main character wasn’t fighting crime he was perpetrating crimes. I can certainly see why middle schools enjoy it, especially the scene in which Mulch the dwarf takes on Butler!
The book is funny, smart, and moves quickly; resulting in an entertaining read.
