Oh gosh...where to begin.

The writing is beyond brilliant, descriptive, detailed, with use of words that I had to use a dictionary to find the meaning which was a delicious vocabulary enhancer.

I could hardly put this book down and it was written from a view of a teen that was truly fascinating and appealing to adult thinking.

The plot was unbelievably woven with surprises that will stick with me over time. I didn't want the book to end...although the ending was breath taking. I had to reread portions of it in order to process it.

Do yourself a favor and read this book. I'm actually thinking of purchasing it as a gift for various friends.

Also his book BONE WHITE...is beyond words to recommend.
