I loved this book. It was exciting, funny, and amazingly written. Brandon Mull is an excellent writer. I would LOVE to give this book 5 stars, but I'm holding back because of one offensive issue: Mull's senseless handling of race.
He carelessly says, "Some Asian kid balling his eyes out and holding his mom.." at the beginning, and throws out tons of "The coach, a big black guy". The thing that annoyed me was the "melting-pot" candies that could change a person's race. Mull senselessly describes Asians having "squinty eyes" and a Latino boy being this and that, and one of his characters says "Cool! I was hoping for black!"
It just amplified racial stereotyping in that moment of the story, and I was fairly disappointed in Mull for adding that in.
