Meg Rosoff’s range of subject matter and writing style continues to amaze me. This tale of God as a teenaged boy who runs Earth by his surging hormones is unusual and often hysterically funny. Whether you are a person of faith or not, you have to let go and be swept along in the fun. Searching for deep theology or a treatise on the nature of God won’t allow you to enjoy a book that does not take itself seriously.

Rosoff’s work is in some ways similar to LAMB: THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO BIFF, CHRIST’S CHILDHOOD PAL by Christopher Moore, which I enjoyed more. (That novel is more about the life of Jesus than imagining God’s role in today’s world).

Some readers might be insulted that Rosoff even tries this conceit, but as I said, don’t analyze, just go along for the ride.
