's review

it was amazing

Initial thoughts:

1. Loved Clay. He is wonderfully funny, and geeky. His journey throughout the story was fantastic.
2. Loved the combination of new and traditional, young and old. Seeing ideas, and characters that are different and opposite come together.
3. Lot's of wonderfully geeky elements. Design, typography, technology, books, and other very nerdy things. It was AMAZING.
4. I really liked and appreciated how the characters and the story was grounded in reality. There are a lot of elements that had the potential to shoot off in the fantasy/sci-fi realm, but I was glad that it didn't. Really grounded the story and made it more realistic.
5. Why doesn't my cover glow in the dark?! -__-;

An I want to read this!

Dayna Cunningham I was not a fan

Danielle The cover glows in the dark :) You just have to be patient and make sure the room is completely dark.

Miss Bookiverse The cover glows in the dark? I NEED a hard copy of this book :O

CindySlowReader My copy is soft cover and it glows. Be sure to let it soak up some light, THEN turn out the lights for glowage.
