Review
This was a short read for me, and i read it in a matter of hours, afterwards i found myself stuck with the review. So, this for me - i didn't enjoy it. As a story i thought i could delve in, i found myself a bit unimpressed, however this would suit my brother to a tee! Bugs, spies and recipes, one happy 12 year old. I found that it would appeal to a younger audience than me, a 22 y/o smut reading female. I like to dabble in other books, i do but it was a shame this never worked. It's something i would reccomend to those with sons, who are between a child, less than a teenager. The story follows the Cicadas as they venture into the world, how to tackle them, and even how to cook them! It was just a shame i didnt fancy it.

Rating; 4/10
