When I described what was happening in this book to my boyfriend, he said that it reminded him of Harry Potter in the way that some adults were villified. I pointed out that there are adults who are not and that, with Dahl and Dickins, there is a history of this technique used to empower children. However, with this perspective nagging at the back of my brain, I found myself having lost the interest to continue reading. Perhaps in the future I'll try again.
