Ok, the first note, I hate gender benders I find them infuriating, but this book does it well.
I actually really like this story I read it every time I got a chance too. I actually read everything in only a day or two. I really like the characters and the world. The characters (well most) don't seem 2d and actually had some back story and reasons to do what they do. They feel like actual people rather than robots saying a phrase. The humor of the characters are amazing and I found myself laughing so many times.
The world seems very real and living. It's like the town you live in. You don't see what's happening to everything but you know there are things going on and this is how this book feels.
I only have a few problems with this book though. I feel like there's not enough work with the setting. It doesn't get very descriptive so it's hard to make an image in my head. Other than that I don't really have a problem with this book and it's an overall great read.
