's review

it was amazing

Paul takes a real turn in his writing here and I think it may be an important moment in his career. I can give one passage as a perfect example. His detailing the death of the mother, how it went from 'everything is okay and it's a backache' to 'nothing is okay and your world is over/changed' was perfect. Plus, in an endless stream of stories aimed at this age group that focus on YOU FOUND A SECRET MAP IN THE ATTIC or something fantastical as that, the deconstruction of the genre to something as simple as 'your mom's computer's password isn't what it should be and you can't ask her what it is' is a brilliant and bold move. Paul was already a great writer, but we're all anxious to see where this new direction takes him in general.
