This is a creepy, funny, clever collection of stories that will appeal to adults and teens. Recommended for fans of Neil Gaiman.

These stories are dark but funny. This was very enjoyable but won't appeal to all teens. It's complicated and post-modern with stories within stories within stories. There's a lot of metafiction, where the reader is made aware they are reading. Creative and interesting but few of the stories have satisfying endings.

"I need you to steal three books," Fox says. "From a library in a place called Iowa." "I know Iowa," Jeremy says. "I mean, I've never been there, but it's a real place. I could go there." "I'm going to tell you the books you need to steal," Fox says. "Author, title, and the jewelly festival number--" "Dewey decimal," Jeremy says. "It's actually called the Dewey decimal number in real libraries." "Real," Fox says, sounding amused.
