This book will be a good one for book groups, especially, I think, parent/child ones. The premise is really fun, and could lead to discussions about privilege. It's a bit heavy-handed on that front towards the end, but I think it's forgivable. ( )

Cute, but riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. It was an ARC, so maybe those errors will be corrected in the final version. Even if all errors are corrected, it's only a three-star read--good, but not great. ( )
