Blind feedback because I have no direct contact with the person nor do I know who they are. A librarian proxies this for me.
I liked the beginning because I'd never seen anything like that before (how the book was "talking" to you) but I think the beginning of the book was confusing, and it would help if it told a little more about the character's feelings. Another thing you could do to make kids want to read the book more is change the title to something cooler and maybe a little shorter. But, in general, I think what the book is about is pretty interesting.
