Westerfeld is so fun to read.
This is my at-work book for the week.
Well, that didn't take long. It shares elements with a William Gibsonovel I enjoyed. Here's something I love about Westerfeld: even when the story is told by a guy, the chicks are the ones making decisions and taking risks.

Two Manhattan teens on the cutting edge of everything turn their clever eyes to solving a mystery that no one else seems concerned by. Complications ensue, as do interesting hairstyles and outfits, amid a deep philosophical conversation about culture as exemplified by sneakers. An amusing romp, thoughtful, but never tedious.
