Although this has been marketed as a YA book,it is categorized as adult Science Fiction at my library. Honestly I think it's right where it should be.

I a little odd, yes, but it makes sense. Loved the made up words. I'm a very non political person, but it's basically a commentary on today's politics set in a "once a upon a time" but with a more realistic spin. It was short, to the point, and amusing. Plus, it has pictures! I don't often get to read a book with pictures.
A playful coming-of-age adventure story with just the right amount of seriousness at its heart.
