I didn't enjoy this one as much for some reason - felt distant from it. Hard to put my finger on why exactly. The story took some liberties to have Clark ditch Smallville and become a Metropolis runaway without the aid of a certain red rock. It's a creative attempt that doesn't fully work since you lose the small town charm and familiar faces being around so much.

There's also a small nudge of attraction for the first time from Lex to Lana, which may be foreshadowing for the awkward series storyl

My favorite of the Smallville books. You really felt for Clark when he felt he needed to runaway. I just loved the character of Luna. I wish she was in the show. I liked how she and Clark really liked each other and was sad when they had to leave each other. I liked how engaging the show was not to mention Luna's magical abilities. But even more than that was Clark believed the He Could Fly. Even if it was temporary. Great story. A+

I'm the author of Cherries in Winter: My Family's Recipe for Hope in Hard Times, published in hardcover by Doubleday in November, 2010; normally a happy holiday time of year, but that particular November was one of the worst in this economic downfall--kind of timely, since my book was part Recession therapy, part comfort food recipes. Cherries in Winter is out now in paperback with added chapters ...more
