Mar 16, 2009: I ended up stumbling upon this little gem about a week and a half ago, and I am rather glad I did. It’s a charming piece of young adult fiction that centers around a relatively ordinary girl named Max and her increasingly extraordinary exploits in Boston trying to (ostensibly) prevent the end of the world (as foretold by a voice only she can hear).
The writing style is really clean, and I find the prose to be highly amusing. So far, it feels like we’re still getting to know Max and the world she lives in, but I find it to be really interesting, and I can’t help but want to know more.
This is a great read for any fan of modern fantasy YA fiction.
