    My 11 year old DS just finished reading (and enjoyed) both of them. He says Applewhites At Wits end was really good and he enjoyed it even more than the first one.

    Just finished reading both books to DS and he loved them both. Thanks for bringing them to our attention, pandahoneybee!

    As a side note, he now "loathes" things instead of hating them, and is constantly "at his wit's end!" with me. Who teaches them these things? LOL

    We read "Surviving..." for our evening read aloud 2 books ago - both kids really enjoyed it. Boy says it was "great" - when pressed for more detail, he said he liked Destiny the best, because he was closest to his age and he talks all the time. Girl said it was "awesome" (grrr. We need a "Stupid Dumb Words" list.) - when pressed, she said she liked how it kinda said "don't get your hopes up too high, because if something goes wrong it could really mess you up." ??? She and I are going to be discussing that one some more, I think.
