Really cool to see Miéville writing at the YA level. Nothing about this book was bad, per se, but somehow it just didn't grab me like some of his other novels have... it's a little Lemony Snicket and a little Mirrormask and a little Phantom Tollbooth and a little Neverwhere. Somehow, perhaps because of its similarity to so many other stories, it just read as a little formulaic and less purely inventive than his other work. A very fun read though.
