Really a novella that the recent trend of book design has created into a 320 page book - font is double large, very wide margins. That said, it also has an awful lot of wordiness and I am anxious to hear how YAs will react to getting minute details about the differences between the house that is integral to the story. I enjoy decorating mags etc. but just found being hit on the head with all the "differences" to get to be a bit much. This is the first of a trilogy - also a publishing house trend to get YAs to buy more. I am interested in reading the others however I am assuming that all 3 together would make one cohesive book and a lot of the wordiness could be eliminated.
