Exceptionally good. A dead cert for my Best of 2017 list, and it's only February.

A thoroughly intelligent, ingenious take on Peter Pan, with a premise that shifts from delightful to funny to profoundly moving. It deals with real and deep issues but never loses hope or joy; it's a very thought-provoking work about growing up and fantasy and loss and identity, and also *at the same time* a terrific romp with an absolutely charming love story and a perfect ending. It is also impeccably written and edited. I'll count myself lucky if I read a better romance this year. Genuinely lovely.

I loved Coffee Boy; this is streets ahead. Austin Chant is an emerging star of the genre and I can't wait for what he does next.
