A brilliant book! Mina’s memories, thoughts and life in one excellent story! Also some great, unbelievably good facts to share and “Extraordinary Activities” to have a go at. I would recommend this book for sure!

This book is ok when you first start it intrigues you a lot but as you read on it doesn’t make you feel like you should carry on
There is way to much dialog and less description there is also loads of boring imfomation and almost gave up on it
