really liked it
Read in October, 2009

This book definitely has a hint of fantasy to it....a bit fable-like, if you will. It's very heartwarming and entertaining, and I had trouble putting it down any time I tried. I loved how put-together the children were in this book, and how it made me really almost fall in love with a bum of NYC - the central characters are definitely not of "the norm." I only have one complaint about this book though - most of it was really great, however the end didn't quite satisfy me. I don't really feel as if things were wrapped up as I would have hoped. When I turned the page only to see that there was no more left, I was shocked. I wish we had been given a tiny bit more to go on at the conclusion. Definitely not enough to deter future readers though - I would highly recommend this one for a fun, suck-you-in read!!
