it was ok

I wasn't that into the book. I liked the worldbuilding. It was snazzy. In fact, it was the reason I read the book (someone on Strange Horizons called it the children's version of The City and the City, which I really, really liked the worldbuilding of while not caring for the book). I didn't particularly care for the main character, Mosca, and somehow never really got into the book. The idea of a city divided into day (the "good" people) and night (the "bad" or unlucky people) was interesting, although it never was quite believable to me. I probably won't read any more books in the series, because I'm not invested enough in the world or characters.
