YOUR WORDS ARE PURE MAGIC
This is one of the books were the writer goes out of her way to be magically descriptive. To make her words tasty and sweet. It is about the words and not the story. A couple of times I thought a story was going to happen, but it took a back seat to words, words and more words.
I was a military brat and I know that feeling of being a new kid. From kindergarten to fourth grade I went to a different school each year. I moved four times during my high school years. Like the main character it made me an introvert and very shy. I dreaded my first day at every school I ever went to. This could have been a story I could have gotten into. I like words, but when they help make the story, not when they take over the story.
I think Lloyd missed the boat, by not making this a teen book. If she would have made the main character a high school student, there would have been a larger audience for the story. I find it hard to believe that young kids would stand for eight hours of syrupy sweet words. This was like Dr. Seuss on steroids.
I thought the narrator was great.
