really liked it

Masterpiece is the story of an unlikely friendship between an eleven year old boy named James and a beetle (not cockroach) named Marvin. Broach again weaves art, mystery, and adventure into a captivating story. Much of the tension is derived from the fact that Marvin is the artist while James is credited with the talent. How this dilemma was resolved kept me avidly reading until the end. I loved the description of the flow state of creativity experienced by Martin when he is engaged in the art process.
