Up until the last 25 pages or so, I thought I was going to give this book 2.5 or 3 stars. Having known nothing about the book whatsoever, I was more than surprised by the ending. Ultimately, I'm giving this book the most prestigious of presigiousness. :) Ultimately, this is what I would like to give my children. The confidence and clarity to be imaginative, creative, and clever. Jess is given a gift, he cultivates it in himself - not even knowing he has it until he finds himself alone. Then, he has the clarity to give that gift to someone else he loves. FABULOUS! I also apprectiate the symbolic Christ figure.

"It was up to him to pay back to the world in beauty and caring what Leslie had loaned him in vision and strength"

Beautiful.
