Read this for our book group which sometimes chooses children's/young adult books. After the rave reviews, I expected to love it. There were parts that were in fact lyrical, beautifully written and heart wrenching. However, there were elements that were just downright stupid and I can't imagine children even finding them amusing. I don't have kids and it's been a while since I was a kid, so I could be wrong, but I can generally read a well written children's book and see the magic in it.
