I think Matt Mahurin is an original. His books are so tightly edited and shockingly well presented...it makes me wonder what else is sitting around in his studio. He gives us just a bit of what could very well be much larger series, and yet his voice ...more

I was so impressed by this book. And while it's true, as a previous reviewer wrote, that there are similes galore, I thought they were insightful and original and become part of the character's personality, and voice. Even though I was aware of these ...more
