What a strange, strange book. Gantos's preoccupation with free will vs. predestination is an interesting one. I think I admired more than liked it.
Cecil Castellucci, Plain Janes
What Boy Proof does for geeks, Plain Janes does for suburbia: hits the balance between empathy and call-to-action. "Yes, it sucks, I know it sucks, you have every right to be angsty and alienated. But it's up to you to make things better. Nobody else is going to do it for you. So go to it! It's fun!"
Loved it, but wanted more (especially given all the advertising in the back pages...)
