Is this a new writing techniue that I just don't prefer or is it completely bad grammar being presented in a kids' book?After getting past the initial bluntness of the incomplete sentence issue I am finding this story to be a very action packed tale of two kids fighting their way out of a forest fire There is danger around every corner but through each major event the kids seem to keep their heads and think through their problems logically In the midst of all of the drama the author takes the time to develop the characters into uite interesting kids who have each seen the harsher side of life Their initial family problems do not sway them from their goal of reaching safety This allows the reader to truly see the resiliency of each character
