Our Young Reviewer Says:

“This book was excellent. I’m not much of a sci-fi reader so I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Its character development and complexity set it apart from novels of its kind and the depth of character relationships make it much more than a simple mystery.” – Caroline, 15 years old, New Haven, CT.
