Let's start with the fact that this is a short story, like an old newsstand dime-novel that my grandfather might read in his slippers, only modern. That makes it a whole lot of fun and easy to read.
The author takes 21st century "values" (like boys sharing feelings instead of being John Wayne, girl heroes, and "guns are bad") and puts them in a blender with old adventure story ideas (like gunfights, rooftop chases and a deformed villain). What we get is a weird, funny mashup.
There's a mom who's a 2nd Amendment crazy person, and a fat boy sidekick who talks about his body image like he's in a self-help group during chase scenes. The villain is an archaeologist treasure hunter, which is a fun twist. And the hero? He never opens up about some things and we wish he would instead of being stoic.
The kids in this book have discussions and know things that most ordinary 14-year-old kids don't, but that's sort of the point. Stewie Griffin isn't really a baby, either.
