This book is very exciting from a pool scene to where Ethan lies to his friends to a fun sledding scene. This book teaches a good life lesson for all people big or small and to take your responsibilities seriously. - Declan/Isaac, 5th grade boys

This is my favorite book in the Battle of the Books contest. I read it when I was still a liar. - Cameron, 10 years old

I had a class set of the book so my students could enjoy reading it together each day. We had great discussions on what integrity looks like and it was a favorite part of the day! - Alicia Steadman, 3rd Grade teacher, Lawrence Elementary

What people are saying:

"Allie Slocum has written an entertaining story with values and lessons every child should be introduced to and reminded of often. A must-read for elementary kids and middle schoolers alike!" - Kevin Wood, English Teacher, Newton Middle School

"This is a quick, imaginative, fun, informative educational little read, aimed at both telling a good story and reminding children, in gentle ways, that words are powerful, that people have reasons for their behaviors, that not everything is as it first seems, and that we shouldn't take our loved ones for granted. Words do more than sting; they have power. It hits some deep topics, but in ways children can understand. I intended to read one or two chapters before bed, and wound up reading the entire thing in one go. I'm not the target audience, but if it held my interest, as a cynical adult, I imagine it'll enchant kids. It's not preachy so much as it is thought-provoking. It also made me rethink some of my words and friendships." - Charity Bishop, Editor for the Prairie Times
