David has begun to make friends in his new town. He has the big dog Bolivar to watch over him. But he'll be seven soon and he should be at school. And so, with the guidance of the three sisters who own the farm where Simon and Ines work, David is enrolled in the Academy of Dance. It's here, in his new golden dancing slippers, that he learns how to call down the numbers from the sky. But it's here, too, that he will make troubling discoveries about what grown-ups are capable of.

An awfully tedious read; flat, un-enjoyable, a ridiculous plot. It sounds like a teenagers attempt at writing like Hemingway. The spare-ness of the prose is punctuated here and there with a few oddities, and thinking about them (wholly the work of the reader) is the only pleasure from this work. I will not read it again, and barely had the patience to finish it.

A quick read, but tedious at the same time. I have no idea what the author's trying to do with this book. I won't be reading any more of this latest series. Deeply disappointing.
