Let me just say that this is a very hard one to blog about without giving anything away, but I'll give it a shot...
Micah is different. She has always been a loner and freely admits to being a liar, but when her secret boyfriend dies mysteriously, her whole life comes under scrutiny. Now she plans to tell you the truth, the whole truth......or so she says.
I spent the entire book trying to separate the lies from the truth. I'm still not sure.
What struck me at first is that this feels very different from anything else written by Larbalestier. The setting is quite real, New York, and like the Magic and Madness series, you can feel the writer's love of the City. The characters are complex and interesting, fully-realized yet reflected through the lens of Micah's telling, of Micah's "truth."
I can't wait to talk to some of you about this one. But I refuse to until you have read it. I just don't think I can trust myself to not reveal something important!
