held my attention with it's contradictions. Despite having a light, playful tone the concepts and situations driving this book are both complex and dark. The main character's completely disorienting and frightening reality is leavened with silly banter, shoe philosophy, and a few Sleeping Beauty "dance with the animals" moments. Despite the existential issues and gang violence, I found myself warmed by the overall hopeful tone. While the characters themselves were a bit too shallow to really sweep me away, Goldsmith has balanced the mysteries and answers in the plot well enough that I hope for a second installment.
