Oddity Author Sarah Cannon Summary ´ 8 Welcome to Oddity New Mexico where normal is odd and odd is normalAda Roundtree is no stranger to dodging carnivorous dumpsters distracting zombie rabbits with marshmallows and instigating games of alien punkball But things haven't been the same since her twin sister Pearl won the town's yearly Sweepstakes and disappeared. This book seemed to start off pretty well with an exciting scene involving schoolkids trying to take down live leopards in the gym It set the tone for the rest of the book s uirkiness Unfortunately those uirks were both its strength and its weaknessFor the longest time I thought I was going to DNF this one If I go back over my notes I see that I was over halfway in when I suspected I might be getting to the main plot That s way too late for any book never mind one aimed at younger readers When the plot finally did get going it still had some hiccups and stalls before finally barrelling through toward the finale The pacing in the whole book seemed off as a result and the little six months later epilogue at the end really could have been skipped since it was basically just a rushed scene that didn t really add anything to the story except another uirky anecdoteSo Oddity New Mexico is a weird little town It s sort of along the lines of Midnight Texas but with a kid friendly slant There are aliens running around town getting into weird face offs with zombie rabbits which I actually liked their grasp of grammar was especially amusing one of them referred to a particular type of frozen meat as beeves which makes a weird sense if you think about it The whole town is run by a uartet of sentient puppets Yes puppets It s just one of the weird and wonderful ideas in this extremely creative storyThe problem is so much of the first part of the book is spent developing this complex world Each chapter seems like a little vignette unrelated to any sort of overarching plot And while I can see looking back that those episodes helped to explain a lot of what was going on it didn t seem like those bits were relevant at the time It s almost as if this story wasn t meant to be a novel I can see it as a graphic novel where you could draw many of these creatures and scenarios without having to explain them in writing or as an animated movie it would be so cute and colourful as a novel though all that exposition and world building became a bit tediousThen there s the issue of the ages There are a few things in the book that made me wonder if the characters had originally been written as a bit older 13 or so maybe and then were aged down later I m not sure why this would ve been done because it would ve worked so much better had the characters been a little older Then I wouldn t have had to wonder why all these kids were going through precocious puberty Ada mentions that she continually teased her guy friends about their cracking voices and one of them wears body spray implying he s already getting stinky but they re only supposed to be 11 year old fifth graders why nobody seemed to care that preteens were running around at all hours of the day and night and why Ada used words that I constantly had to look up Writing child characters can be tricky They need to sound like kids Ada didn t I might ve been able to go with it if she d been 13 and a voracious reader or something but when an 11 year old who hasn t shown any inclination toward being particularly studious talks about a baby being fractious the author s clearly showing her handThere s uite a bit of representation here Ada s black her friend has two moms and her aunt s disabled However I wasn t uite sure why Ada was black particularly in this setting It might ve been nice to see a kid with a background from the local area maybe Pueblo There was also a uestionable joke about a certain type of alien that resided in the town that came perilously close to an offensive racial stereotype I m not sure if that s what the author intended but that s how I read itStill I really wanted to find out what happened to Ada s sister Pearl So I kept reading Luckily this book has some of the technically strongest writing I ve read in ages so at least I didn t have to worry about that And when we finally got around to the real meat of the story it was exciting and ultimately satisfying
