Sixteen-year-old Rule is everything I imagined him to be and more in this great short story. Wilks leaves a comment at the top of the tale that suggests it be read after a few of the novels, get to know Rule before flashing back to his past. And honestly, it is a great suggestion. I have just read this short story after reading the first four books, and although it made his actions a little more predictable, it also made the story all the more enjoyable and the nuances of the characters a little more potent.

I love any story that investigates the cultural norms that we take for granted and turn them onto their head. The cliques that often categorise are of course prevalent in a story about a sixteen-year-old. But, it is the way in which Rule views them that provides a different kind of insight. His willingness to do what is right and break free of the clicks is also such an incredibly attractive quality. That, although from the novels, I already knew he possessed, made me fall for him a little more.
