I loved this book so much!!!! It's cute, funny, AWESOME, and deliciously morbid. The character development is superb, from Lenore to Ragamuffin to Malakai and the Taxidermy. One of my favorite parts was "a brief moment of clarity," where Lenore is playing jump rope with another little girl, and while doing this, realizes how evil and murderous she is. She then vows to pay more attention to her surroundings, and she thinks she'll get lots of new friends-but then she looks back at the girl and realizes that she has accidentally strangled her while deep in thought. I found it interesting how in the beginning, Ragamuffin basically disapproved of Lenore, but it changed towards the middle. He still doesn't think she's that smart, but it is apparent that he loves her very, very much and would do anything to protect her from harm. I love Ragamuffin as a character and wish that he was in the book more than he is (he is there a lot, though).
