I read this over a month ago and, stupid me, didn't take notes. It wasn't very memorable for me. I did like the way Tim left the CD's for Duncan to listen to. The world building wasn't fantastic, but I got a good picture in my mind. I wasn't fond of Vanessa at all. Maybe because I was never that popular. She just pissed me off that she wouldn't be around Tim when others were around. And I thought Duncan was just a little too whiny for my taste. I did feel bad for Time. He knew he would never be popular or "get the girl" because he was albino. It must suck living your life that way.
