The day before her fourteenth birthday, Beatriz comes home from school and finds her parents gone.Beatriz is sent to stay with her Uncle M in New Year until her parents are found. She gets invited to the nineteenth floor and she goes in hopes of finding clues about where her parents might be. That is where Beatriz strange journey begins.I thought this was a pretty good book. It moved a little slow at times, but some parts were really interesting. And it had me wondering through most of the book about her parents and where they were. Then who the witch really is surprised me. Any book that keeps me guessing and surprises me is a good book.And I also liked the characters. Beatriz, Rose and her children, even Death was fun when he make his appearances. Overall, I thought the book was a nice read.
