I opened it up and saw comics and I like them a lot. It is a story about two girls (the main characters). It is a unique and fun book because it is very adventureous and a little bit strange. There is weird stuff that happens to them. I liked the combination of the story and comics (which are part of the story). I recommend it for ages 8-12 year old girls. I want to read more books fromt this series.
