Absolutely fantastic book. I laughed, I cried, I wet my pants. Well, the pants wetting part isn't true. And neither is the crying. But I did laugh quite a bit while reading this book.
Before I was even halfway through the book, I found myself trying to convince friends to read it by telling them, "It's kind of like Scott Westerfield's Leviathan series meets L.A. Meyer's Bloody Jack series mixed in with the television show Firefly."
No. I am completely serious. And IT. WAS. AWESOME. And funny. Did I mention the funny?
I found these books in the Middle Grade/Juvenile section of the library, but feel it could easily be placed in the teen section. There are also a lot of jokes throughout that only adults will understand (references to Star Trek and other tidbits from popular culture).
The book has great illustrations and the audiobook is good, too. I won't bother with a summary since you can just click on the book title and see for yourself.
