This book won the National Book Award for Young People and was chosen as one of Amazon's Top 50 Editor's Picks for 2006. I bought this for my husband who LOVED it, was immediately drawn in on the first chapter and said it was universally appealing to young and old. He also let his 12 year old little sister read it, and she finished it in one day!
