I met the author when he talked about _So Say The Waiters_ at a local bookstore. I bought a copy and finished it in one sitting; it felt like binge-reading but I really could not put it down! It is phenomenal! Sirois has created a constellation of characters that are engaging and feel real, from Dani and Henry to Uly and even Barnstormer.
As a Baltimorean, I enjoyed playing "guess the location" with the places in the book. Even more, I appreciated that Sirois included a broad cross-section of places and people, from the (not) hipster bartender to the whitebread suburban programmer to the westside black teen who rides dirt bikes (and writes poetry). The book offered a window into their lives, and now that I've finished it, I keep wondering what they are doing now, and what the next kidnApp adventure will be.
I can't wait for the next book in the series, and the next one, and the next one!
