I love Jackie Faber and the reader of the audio book is excellent. This story keeps a good pace and introduces excellent new characters. My only complaint was that it was a little darker than the first. The rate of catastrophe outweighed that of Jackie's success. Also, I didn't like the abrupt ending. I've already started with the third book, and enjoy the bright spots in spite of all the trouble Jackie finds.

I appreciate Jackie's upbeat and optimistic nature. Her adventures, if a little unbelievable, make for an entertaining read. The best audience would be twelve and older, because Meyer doesn't gloss over the harder parts of the time period.
