Exposure (Indecent, example the main character Omri has to sneak into his parents liuor cabinet to steel whisky for the cowboy REALLY My kids loved it though and had me read through the whole series The second book in this series was just OK not as good as the first But seuels rarely are And the third book in this series seemed filler than plot I was honestly ready to be finished with this series and did NOT want to read the last book My children begged me though so I gave in I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised It seems that Ms Lynne Reid Banks got her inspiration back while writing this book It had lots of twists and kept usntertained throughout Boys and I both Not Without a Fight enjoyed this one me uite a lotspecially in comparison to the last one The novel xplains the origin of the magic and the cupboard through a diary of Omri s great grandmother s sister I imagine it s challenging to keep such a uniue construct alive and fresh across a serie.
