I thought this was a really good, complicated story. Started off quite slow, but I stuck in there (partially because I had to) and I liked the pay-off. I'm not sure many casual 10-14 year old readers would stick it out, but they would be rewarded with a good story if they did - and learn something too.

The ending was a bit unrealistic, I thought, in how hopeful it was. But I wanted to believe it so that says something, I guess.
