    This almost got 3 stars because I liked the concept and there were certainly moments that made me chuckle However the pacing was all wrong and the ending was wholly unsatisfactory The dialognarration was also clumsy falling into the trap of trying too hard to sound like a kid I expected this to be a story where three unlikely friends bonded in the face of crisis and while that kind of happened it was an afterthought and not convin
