This book was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Seriously! I loved the idea of Itch being an element hunter. I always love collections and experiments and Itch's hype about the periodic table seemed to interest me. He is so passionate about science which is by far something I love about the book.It's great when a character has a hobby that links in with the story well.
It started off pretty dull. Normal school boy, bullied,extra tall and no eyebrows. But as the mysteries about Cake began and the puzzle of the rock was fussed over, I began to think the book wasn't so bad after all.
It all started with Flowerdew testing the rock. Then there was an unexpected result. Flowerdew stole the rock an Itch and Jack sneakily stole it back. This is when the action begins.
Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies. Cake Dies.
All because of element 126! Itch now has to make sure he doesn't fail Cake and has to get rid of the rocks but where? No where is safe.
The next part of this book is all about where he hides it, how he does it, how he comes up with the idea. It was all really fascinating. I thought that this was the end but looks like I've got two more books heading my way! I hope I enjoy them.
