    • I found myself really liking this book despite thinking that the main character of Colin was a bit of a spineless twit. He manages to rally near the end and redeem himself somewhat so the book ended on a hopeful note.


    • Don't let the pencil crayon cover fool you: this book is no amateur. I found the storyless setting of Ariban felt authentic.
