From the Publisher: "A boy in a small town who has a different way of seeing.

  1. The Danger Box was a really interesting book. One reason I liked it was because it had short chapters. The reason it had short chapters was because the plot was so complex and exciting. One chapter it would be from Zoomy, the main character's view. Then it would be another character's point of view. If the author tried to put all that happened in just a couple long chapters, the reader would get lost! Since the plot of The Danger Box is so exciting, Blue Balliett has to use short chapters. Having short chapters also allows Blue Balliett to skip around in the plot. She could easily go back to something she had pointed out before in the story.
    I also liked The Danger Box because it was gripping. It kept me wanting to read the next "short" chapter.
