Rating: 5 Birds

First things first, this book is going to be made into a movie and I am freaking thrilled. All I kept thinking the whole way through was "This would be an awesome movie", and thanks to IMDb I now know that it is in 2013. So far away. Thank you IMDb, I loves you.

The second thing I thought if the whole way through this book is that I sincerely wished I could put my words together as well as the authors of this book. It's very..... Dawson's Creek-ish. 16 year olds with vocabulary's so big it made me,a t the age of 31 one feel like I was in first grade.

I loved, loved LOVED this book. Teh concpt was so simple yet so complex at the same time. One of those, why didn't I think of that kind of things.

I laughed out loud continually, imagining the conversation between Dash and Great Aunt Ida playing out in front of me, dogs dragging people across rooms, majorette boot on one foot and converse on the other...the list goes on an on.

The imagery created by the words was unreal. It wasn't "this was an old room" it was "I expected Sherlock Holmes and Jane Austin to be thumb wrestling in the corner." Something was never red, it was "soaked in red wine",. Words I would kill to have the ability to use with out sounding like an idiot.

This book is beyond quotable, I will be buying my own copy to highlight, dog ear and drag around with me. In the true form of the novel - I dare you to read this and not love it. My poorly constructed review doesn't do it justice.

5 Birds Easy!
