"The Wizard of Dark Street" was an okay read for me. It was slow in some parts, but most of the time it was fast paced and action packed. It was a very unusual book, and was kind of hard to follow at some parts, because it was so weird. I would recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for a book that's nothing like what they've ever read before. I would recommend "The Wizard of Dark Street" to kids 9 to 12, for scary events.
