Maybe I'd have liked this more if I'd read it, instead of listened to it. As an audio, at least, the pacing dragged and some of the conversations on faith (and other topics) seemed overly long and didactic.

I can see the appeal to certain teens, but I wouldn't think this would be the all-around favorite it seems to have been on the awards circuit. It's just not for everybody, I guess.

Alissa I was surprised by the amount of teen appeal on this title. It was one of the most talked about titles at Annual last year and was talked about at Midwinter last weekend during the teen session as well.
