Very quick read that stayed too close to the surface when it should have delved deeper. Didn't connect with the characters, and the impotence of the adults both in action and mentality was annoying. Liked the vivid descriptive prose, especially when told from the children's point of view, but this story should have had more meat. Far too quick to wrap up with a happy ending, and the message just never felt strong enough.
