Although one of our daughters used to look depressed when pinching her
birthday packages and report, "I know the feel of a book."

It may be marketed as a YA title, but our public library is filing it as
adult fiction. That is to say, they plan to file it as adult fiction if
and when the copy they have ordered ever arrives and makes it through
the byzantine complexities of the library processing system. I suspect
somebody on the fourth (admin) floor snags all the good sf/fantasy and
reads it first, because it takes a loooong time to reach the shelves.
