It didn’t help that they had almost a whole extra year of life to figure things out and I was always woefully behind in terms of friendships, relationships, handling stress, etc.

Egg’s journey to shed her trappings and to confidently inhabit her own character is one readers won’t want to ceckl. I’ve heard from a lot of people that this book is pretty so-so, but honestly I enjoyed it a lot and flew through it. Basically what I loved is that none of the geek stuff is sugar-coated.

I’ll be reading this one for the rest of my life, I think. One of my favourite books of all time. Just the right tone all the way through, especially for teens living in Los Angeles or wishing they did.
