If I could change one thing about this book, it would be all the background information they give you. It alternates chapters. First they tell you a story about Dewey, describing his personality and how he interacts with others, then they next chapter is background information on Iowa, Spencer, or Vicki herself. Although this stuff is important and affects some of the plot line, the way it is described is so boring. After reading those chapters, I can't usually remember what I just read. I would change that because it makes the book boring. It would affect the plot line and make the book's only character Dewey, which would also be boring. I guess no matter what the books going to be boring.
