Don't know what I expected with this one. But its not exactly what I got.
Definitely an interesting read. I got snagged almost immediately and had trouble putting it down. An overly late night, and mostly wasted day later, I got through it.
This book sort of contained the 'feel' of "A Wrinkle in Time", those old kids novels from the 50s and earlier (Mushroom Planet, Half magic, etc) though with more modern twists, and nothing that exactly pinned it down at the same time.
Well done and did I mention quite interesting?
