It was enjoyable. Light, but enjoyable. I don't have a lot to say about it, due to its lightness. I liked the kid, mainly. Probably my inner geek coming out. I was never too much of a geek in school, though. I always had good friends, never got bullied, that sort of thing. I went through my painful phases, but no one ever seemed to notice. I do remember a couple of months (maybe shorter than that ... time expands in high school) when I had no one to eat lunch with, but it didn't last long. Still, it was kind of sad. I identify with geeks more as an adult than I did as a kid, even when I was sitting there reading through lunch in 4th grade. I was kind of oblivious to the social pecking order.
Anyway, enjoyed the book. Looking forward to moving on to something with a bit more heft ... here's hoping I'm up to it. If not, if I have trouble like I did with Lady Oracle, I'll put the book away and read something lighter again. No shame in it.
