Heaps of fun after the first 80 pages of Miles playing Whiny McEmo. Honestly, Miles, you're a kind person, bright as a button and smart as a whip, a charismatic and inspirational leader with a powerful and relatively wealthy family who love you. Your readily compensated disability, in this context, fails to make me super-sad for you. Boo-hoo, your bones are brittle. You have learned not to jump off high walls, right? Because no little boys have broken bones jumping of high walls in the history of boys (and, it must be said, Anne Shirley, in the history of girls). Your lack of fabulous height and manly good looks likewise fails to inspire pity. Yes, tragic that you come from Planet Eugenics but hey, could be worse, you could have been killed as an infant. (See previous note re FAMILY LOVES YOU.) Thank goodness he seems to get over it, because the rest of it is a bit of a romp. I'm sure I've read and enjoyed another book in this series.
