Interest level: 7-8 – I really enjoyed reading this book.  The author chose an interesting style to tell the story, and it was such a cool little story to tell.

Ease of read: 9 – It’s young adult fiction.  And it was fun.

Life changer: 3 – Not anything seriously life altering, but it was a good reminder that we all ought to fight for the things that are important to us, even if the powers that be are against it.

TTBR Synopsis: A 12 year old girl fights against the city government to save the towers that her uncles built in their backyard.  Also, she has a crush on a 20-something guy who inexplicably seems to have a crush on her, too.  That part was kind of weird.
