Why did I pick this book?: caught my eye at the library. By a publisher I like.

Summary and Review: taken from publisher's website-

There was a playful combat everywhere. I didn't have time to look around, but there had to be close to a hundred people around me, yelling, laughing and swinging their pillows.

On the edges of the battle other people watched. There were grown-ups holding their kids by the hand or loaded down with shopping bags, looking stunned or amused or confused. Some laughed and pointed, and others hurried away like they were scared. There had to be almost as many people watching as there were participating.

One of the pillows burst, and a million white feathers shot into the air like a billowing cloud! The crowd—watching and fighting—erupted into gasps and screams and laughter.”

This was a fun quick little read. If you have followed my blog at all, you know that I am a fan of this publishing company. I liked this one. It was some kids who were doing flash mobs, and even organizing them for some fun. In the end, they were doing one for a purpose. It was an interesting combination of intelligent characters, and a fast paced story line. Totally made ME wanna try a flash mob. Not a lot to this one, but a fun read none the less.
