This was a fun, face-paced read. I love multi-media formatting, and this novel did it exceptionally well. There were moments where I laughed out loud--like, within the first few chapters. Damico also handled the large cast well. Some characters were flat out of necessity, but most of them had layers and dimensions that we discovered as the book progressed.
