August 2012: as great as I remembered. It was interesting to pick up on all the little breadcrumbs of clues that I had missed first time around.

Jan 2010: Just finished this fantastic middle grade book. It was a quick but memorable read. This book is loosely inspired by Madeleine L'engle's Wrinkle in Time and is a quite beautiful look at some of the themes from that book. There is a nice element of mystery which unfolds throughout the story and is resolved in a very satisfying way. This book should be read adults and children alike.
Can't say more than that for fear of spoilers. Good for 4th grade and up.
