I thought this book was ultimately a lot of fun. has kind of a boring start (first 100 pages?), but the character building finally pays off when children start going nuts and harming other children in a terrifying cafeteria showdown. telekinetic autistic rage, for the win. Drug addict assassin parenting for the win. Insights into the gypsy alien race of Quarians, ftw. (I felt their lifestyle was focused on to mirror the sensitivities of the damaged little girl).

Really dug the small story of a bad person choosing to do one good thing at a key point in their life ( Its mixed in there with some other charming stories, and maybe has been overlooked by those who didn't like this novel?). Adds up to a fun action romp.
Also turns out to be a nice setup for the following book in the series.
