This is a lyrical short book with a nice voice and I read it fast since it was reasonably engrossing, but in the end I kind of did not see its point, while outside the pages, the suspension of disbelief truly shatters; it reminded me of a much better written and more interesting Acts of Will, a sort of fairy tale set in the adult world - I could not say for adults since the content is very 9th grade with no real adult matters beyond some stuff about pregnancy - though the way the book is written is definitely not for the YA crowd.

So in a sense this is a book that lives in Neverland - YA (more like early high school) subject, adult writing style - and I guess that is the main flaw; a more adult subject would have made the book more for me, while a more YA style would have made it appeal more to that crowd
