There were so many things I liked about this book -- and a few things that became a little uncomfortable. I read about 80% percent of my books on an iPad, but I read this in paperback and it was wonderful! The cover art is very cool, and gives just enough of a hint to the story line. The physical dimensions are a little different, sort of small and compact but easy enough to hold open. It feels a nice and balanced in your hands, which helps to get through the whole thing -- at 345 pages, it seems lengthy for the intended audience. It seemed long to me, anyway, because at times, the story seemed to drag, then speed up for a moment, then drag, drag, drag. Still, a decent choice with a male main character (Jerome), though girls will likely discover an affinity for his tag-along friend, CiCi.
