I read the book to a group of teens, at a youth ministry event for a local church. The teens had a church sponsored sleepover at a local hotel. The hotel allowed me to read the book in the center section of the Hotel – others in the hotel, stood and sat along the banisters to listen to the book. Afterwards, they asked where to buy the book.
The Teens enjoyed the story. The big question was “where is the Hand is now?” All I can say is “You need to contact the Camp Ground with this question.” They are already asking about a sequel.
Reading the story to a group of 13 and over, is a good way to share the story i.e. teen events, camping, youth ministry, book clubs, etc.
