Stork has got to be one of the more unique YA writers today. This book couldn't be more different than Marcelo. His characters are so individual. I actually set the book down with about 40 pages to go so I could savor the ending.

Too bad about the preachy speech towards the end.

elissa Were you listening or reading? Sometimes I don't mind preachy. Looking forward to this!

Jamie I read it. And the only issue with the speech was that it reminded me of the John Galt speech in Atlas Shrugged. It just seemed to be the author's philosophy more than coming organically from the character.

elissa Haven't read ATLAS SHRUGGED. I had a bunch of friends who were in to Rand when I was in my 20's, tho. Yeah, if it doesn't sound like it's the character talking, that's not good writing.
