a little hard to follow

I found this a little hard to get into, and a little hard to follow initially because it frequently switches from 'real life' to Leo's daydreams. On the one hand, I wished those had been set off somehow (perhaps in italics? or indented?). But on the other hand, that is Leo's reality: he slips into daydreams. That's why one of his nicknames is fog boy. In the end, I decided the formatting was appropriate - but I think it might get confusing for a child reading this on their own.

this is such a great book

this is a great mid-teen book i love how the auther explains the part of the book in script text
