it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2011, bibliosnack, young-adult-books, beautifully-written, adventure-action, girl-power, fantasy
Read in July, 2011

This is possibly the best book I've read so far this year. It is just simply jam-packed with creativity and genre-subverting and clever clever worldplay and completely unforgettable characters. I think I'm gonna have to check out some of China Mieville's adult stuff if it's as creative as this one. Phantom Tollbooth + Alice in Wonderland + subversions of both. Thanks China for such a delightful and playful book.

Raina And Neverwhere! Don't forget about Neverwhere!

Sara I've still never read Neverwhere, so though I know that there's a parallel I can't attest to what it is :)

Raina I know, I was just reminding you to read it. Since you're thinking about checking out the rest of his adult stuff. :)
