I really liked the idea behind the book and I loved the depiction of Melody and her family. My main issue is that I thought the author tried too hard to throw in "contemporary" slang, which is jarring to read and I think it'll date the book much faster than would happen otherwise. I know there's some Newbury buzz on this one, and while the story and characters deserve props, the writing itself isn't spectacular.
