I liked this book, but everything felt a little too quirky this time around. Like there are no "normal" characters that I can remember (except maybe Safer's mom and even she was a little weird). Some readers might find that annoying. I liked the story though. The twist felt abrupt to me, but about...

I found it to be charming and amusing, up until about the last 40 pages. And then it became thoughtful, and poignant in a way. The characters are unique and get some nice development.

This is a short, quick, adolescent book. The tone was good, something about it reminded me of Judy Blume's Fudge and Superfudge. Georges is simultaneously playing two games of pretend without actually admitting that he is playing either (although he probably doesn't realize what he is doing with t...
