It's a fun book. I love the concept, and there were a lot of good moments and ideas...it's just that it could have been so much better. It was like the skeleton of a really fantastic, fun, witty book that was never fleshed out. The writing wasn't great (sometimes annoying, in the way it always is when an adult tries too hard to talk like 12-year-old and fails) and all of the characters had the potential to be interesting, but remained mostly flat. I'm glad I read it, but I'm not in a rush to read the rest of the series.
