1. What a great write-up!
    I really liked this very gripping story. You’re right: it’s a book that is hard to describe or explain without giving too much away. A Wrinkle In Time was one of my favorite books as a young teen, and I love the role it plays in here.

  2. Huh. Very interesting. I, too, have heard nothing but positive reviews of this book and I’ve had it on my Amazon wishlist for — forever. I went to the bookstore a few weeks back and picked it up to read the back cover and thought the same thing. 1970’s? New York? Pre-teen angst? What am I missing here? I set the book back down.

    I liked your review because it’s non-committal in any direction. It sounds intriguing AND, yes, very unexpected. I think I wouldn’t mind borrowing this one from the library.

  3. You’ve definitely hooked me with this review. I really need a book that I can get lost in, and this one sounds like it might do the trick. Or it might just get me lost, period. 🙂 I’m going to see if our library has it.

    I think y’all will like it. Let me know what you think! (As if I have to tell a fellow book blogger that. 😉 )

  5. I loved this book! But New York, game show, 70’s, latchkey kid does appeal to me on its face. It’s nice to know that someone who was reluctant can see its charms too though. 🙂
