3 1/2 stars. Very compelling read, fascinating social commentary. To those who think this book is too violent, I would say "please just watch the news." And as for protests about violence + kids, I think the video game/child soldier/Iraq war argument would win points. I would give this book to any kid to read, because I think it achieves the most important goal that a kid's book can do: it is readable, believable, and makes you want to read MORE (and how can this not be the noblest goal there is, to want to read more?). I can't wait to get to work and talk to the kids at my job about it! They've been pressuring me for weeks to read it, and now I can finally be like "I got er DONE."
