Yep, This Title Caught My Attention

Turns out it's a suspense novel for kids, and it has a very darkly twisted hero.  So I had to order it.  This book is the first of a trilogy.  Review will follow soon.

But I have to admit that I'm confused about the state of the kid's market for books.  Publishers seem to be confused as well.  Can we still treat them as innocents when there is evidence to the contrary?  Can we shield them from the darkness in the world when they need to know about it and seem as excited (at times) by it as my generation was of ghosts and monsters?

These are definitely interesting times.
