Read in May, 2009

I found myself so mad at the things going on around the character at times I wanted to throw things, I was so sucked in to this novel. Just a fantastic example of how YA is supposed to work. I think that the only criticism some could level is that it isn't a balanced or nice view of religious zealotry, and I would agree...but I have to admit my own subject position by saying I don't know that I particularly care if that view is represented fairly or not. I devoured it in one sitting, and I have almost never done that before. HIGHLY recommended.
