I have to say, the first few pages of this book did not grab me. I really didn't like the way the characters spoke. I'm a sucker for grammar and spelling. However, I was soon able to overlook all of that because the story was super cool. Saba really is one of the most annoying and stubborn characters ever written, but she's completely awesome. This is one of those books where I'm content with the end (and I'm pretty sure it's a stand alone) but I kind of wish we could keep following the characters to see how their lives turn out as they grow up. Loved it! Definitely deserving of all the glowing reviews I've read.
