This book was noteworthy. I like how the main character goes from being slightly hated to being liked. Also I enjoyed how the author introduced many different characters who both dislike and liked the protagonist. Overall, this was a great book.

This is an amazing, descriptive and surprising book. It has an EPIC story line! This book is about a boy named Jack. He is an orphan but one day a character from his favorite comic book comes into reality! He is a rustove. If you don't know what a rustove is, read and find out.. or should I tell you. Nah, it will just spoil the book. I read this book in grade four and my brother read it in grade six and he still loved it. I would recommend this book to kids who like adventure books and fictional books.

A worthy addition to the "I want to be the next JK Rowling" ranks. A nice twist with an Empire Strikes Back touch.
