Yes, he is reviewing a novel, but WHO CARES!
The Monomaniacal Middle Grade Reviewer goes off on a tangent starting at about 1:05 on how to write a great novel, and then goes in-depth around 1:59 about what makes a good action scene, and then again at 3:35 on how to write a great action scene.
This is probably his best interview EVER.
If you care about a kid’s opinion, this is a great interview to take a look at. I am bookmarking this just to come back and take a look at it once in a while.
I think this kid has a future in reviews. Oh, yeah. The actual novel is Rick Riordan’s Battle of the Labyrinth
Take it away, Dude!
