At first I thought this was going to be another young adult dystopian fantasy, I guess because of the title and the cover. I'm happy to report it's not at all what I expected. What an amazingly satisfying realistic read! I fell hook, line and sinker for both characters, Blink and Kitty (Caution), and the storyline propelled me through the pages with its taut plotting. Blink's second person narrative worked, bringing me into his life and thoughts with an intimate immediacy. Wynne-Jones is a writer I will continue to read; his books are well-crafted and compelling. I'm not sure that anyone under the age of 16 will pick up this book due to the lack of fantasy or overt romance, but older teens and adults who enjoy well-written thrillers and realistic drama laced with grief as well as humor will relish this one. Some drug use and violence.
