4.5- Steak and Potatoes with a Chocolate Dessert. Absolutely Fabulous.
What Did Peyton Think?
Sinking deeper is a really well thought out book with a good story. At first I was wasn’t sure if I was really going to like the book but I ended up loving it. I think the story is really about family and how much Roland wanted his parents to stay together. I understood that part but I loved all the fun they had making a sea monster. My favorite part was when the sea monster was made to look like it was breathing fire.
I loved all the characters with all their own personality’s. I loved the charter of Dulsie who had an amazing imagination. She loved art, was just a really good person, and I loved to hear what she had to say. I liked her dad Warren too, he was different than I thought he was at first. I also liked the main charter Roland. He had a very normal personality for a 14 year old boy, I could in some ways relate to him. His granddad Angus was full of awesome surprises, he was really a good person and encouraged things and was very handy with tools.
The book was over all really good and full of adventure. I was surprised that there were some adults who really helped the kids in the book pull off such a scheme. I don’t know what I would do if my parents wanted to get divorced but if that ever happens, making a Sea Monster is now on the list of things I’ll try first to stop it! I think this book is perfect for middle grade readers, boys and girls alike.
BOTTOM LINE: This book is Awesome!
