The language in this book flows with figurative language, coined words, and rhythms that will tickle your tongue (and your fancy).
The character development and hidden depths of the supporting characters was masterful. The author cares as much about the small characters as she does the main ones. I really enjoyed the parallels with the Wizard of Oz; many I had not caught when I read the book the first time.
This book made me both laugh and cry. Mibs' compassion with the homeless man was especially touching. I loved the scene on the bus when Fish blew out the windows with his temper.
