I am amazed at how well thought out the worlds for this book are. I really thought I had pretty much read it all and nothing would surprise me, but Karen Carr has managed to grab me by the hair and say "hey, lookit, something new!". I absolutely loved the whole premise behind this book. LOVED it. It's totally bizarre and fun but has enough of a serious tone to it that I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with Emison and her group of friends next.

In a remarkably original work of middle grade fiction, Carr introduces us to the so-called "shadow world", one in which colors are duller, blacker, and eerily luminous, save for those made of one arbitrary substance: plastic. As a twisted version of our own reality, this alternate dimension, if you will, is one whose residents were never intended to cross over into the Chroma (color) world. Unfortunately, Emison's mother did.

This book is one that truly caters to its intended audience, rememberin

I discovered at a young age that I liked to write. It was mostly because of my father, who wrote so much that he could not leave his study without an avalanche of papers following him. In fact, the only piece of furniture in the study was an old leather sofa. The rest of the room was full of books and bookshelves. It was on this sofa that I spent many hours honing my craft, even after he was gone. ...more
