Good book. Sonnenblick was able to use techniques I'm familiar with from Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie to create a completely different protagonist. As I neared the end, I was really hoping there would be no neat ends, tying everything up, resolving all the protagonist's problems- because that would not be appropriate to this protagonist. Although not all the loose ends were cheerfully tied, I would have liked to see just a few more left loose. To me that would have taken the story from good to great.
