This book has almost more intense situations than one is reasonably expected to handle!! Through out the book you're kept on your toes wondering what will happen next and how Laura's little sister will be rescued, etc..! It won't take long to get through this book, because you won't be able to put it down. Its one of those books where you just keep saying "I'll just read a few more pages and then put it down" over and over again! Well done!!
