She has a way of bringing her stories to a point where I have no idea what is going to happen next, but I look forward to finding out. I appreciate how much intelligence and art she packs into her young adult novels. If you don't get the literary references, you'll enjoy the book; if you do, you'll appreciate it that much more.
