Having previously heard a lot of good things about Marcus Sedgwick's Young Adult Books, when I saw this book in my library I had to check it out.
However, it was a bit disappointing for me. I liked the meaning behind the story, but not the actual story or the characters themselves.
I think the book is more geared towards male readers, though that didn't bother me. I'll read anything!
I will say that the book is beautifully written, and Marcus Sedgwick is a very talented author. Thankfully this book has not put me off reading any of his other books, as we speak I have another 3 of his Young Adult books on my bookcase waiting to be read.
