I like a book that plays with language. You might want to start by having a quick look through the glossary before reading. The narration by an 11-year-old was a bit aggravating to start, but I was feeling the love for him midway through. Love for him and all the vulnerable people and animals (yes, pigeons) trying to eke out a life in this world.
