really liked it

I started this book with rolled eyes; it begins with 6th grade hijinks of kissy girls, notes read out loud by teachers in class and a contest that Jeremy really wants to win. Great. Just great.

But then it got great. Just great. I was unprepared for how heart-rending the relationship between Jeremy and the dragon would be; I expected a kind of funny, bestiary-esque story. What I got was a love story. With funny moments, absolutely, but still a love story. And one thinks, "Are you crazy? A love story? Between a boy and his dragon?" Yes. And yes. And yes. And it was absolutely wonderful.
