OK story. kinda dark and deep for young kids. a little complicated. two characters who are not distinct or particularly appealing.

The cover and description of this book don't begin to hint at its surprising depth and thoughtfulness -- qualities that the author manages to balance with a thoroughly entertaining plot that won't turn off kids who are less interested in questions of morality. In short, there's something for everyone here, young and old, and I really, really liked it. It's strange to finish reading a middle grade fantasy pondering weighty ethical questions and the important role that sadness plays as a part of our lives. Bonus points for racially and sexually diverse characters being included without making it a focal point of the novel. A lovely book, beginning to end.
