I had a lot of fun reading this book. It was sweet, but not saccharine. It had subtle commentary about our world, but wasn't too heavy.
Shane, the protagonist, has a distinctive voice and evident character growth across the course of the book.
Admittedly, I struggled with the mid-point. A magical realism plot twist that didn't quite seem to fit with the rest of the world slowed things down a bit, and there was a lot of character grinning/smirking/snorting that got pretty repetitive throughout.
However, the dialogue, the first and third acts and the shifting settings, really brought it home for me, and I liked both Shane and the romantic lead.
