Laura's March 2019 pick, 3 of 3
Let me start off by saying that this book is phenomenal. I read it in a single afternoon, and upon finishing it, immediately told every coworker I could reach that they, too, needed to read it. I said that this book does exactly what sci fi is meant to; that is, it takes a prominent social issue, dresses it up in an alien costume, and invites the audience to learn a little more about themselves. I was absolutely floored by the profound lessons woven into this story, and even more impressed by Rodkey's ability to turn a life and death situation into a comedy. This book is so very good and so very important. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
“This book is perfect for any young person with an interest in history or science fiction. The characters are like the imagined siblings we all make up when we are fed up with our own. The world of this book is tangible in a way that not all science fiction is. The strangeness of the new world, the new customs, and the various aliens are amazingly vivid. This story of human immigration to another planet has infinite lessons to teach young people and adults about sympathy toward those unlike us.”
