Not kidlit, I know, but has anyone read this?  I'm on about page 90 and am totally blown away by its inventiveness and just sheer fun.  It's gotten hard to find fiction that I don't start editing in my head--this one has just swept me up in the story and completely hogtied my pesky internal editor.

Thoughts, anyone?  :love5:

I haven't heard of it, but you've piqued my interest -- I'll have to look for it.
