Even better than Planet of the Apes!!
This story touched me deeply (not in a gross, book-rape kind of way) and has such a positive message of love and acceptance for all, but while keeping solid boundaries. As a character, Sonny is complex, fun, and full of surprises. I appreciate how the story is told from his point of view as well as from other characters. It gives the book a very balanced feel and makes it more complete. There isn't exactly a cliffhanger at the end, but there's certainly some unfinished business that makes me want the next installment as soon as possible.
