“An amazing read. As I went about my business today having read this book I couldn't help but think how much I take for granted. Narrated by a young girl this novel has an honest matter of fact tone, the emotions the girl feels at the strange events as well as the trials of approaching adolescence are well constructed and come through perfectly.
We assume the world is going to keep turning, the sun is going to rise and set and no matter what other trials we are experiencing the natural world will, in the main, look after itself, except what if it doesn't. What if something shifts and it affects all of us, this is the concept the novel explores. The way the different people react and how new allegiances and rivalries are formed as a result, can the human race simply continue, ignore the will of the planet that hosts us?
As well as depicting a screenshot of growing up this book is thought provoking, it is a good read for the individual and would work really well in book groups. It is accessible and sweetly told whilst unfolding mind bending events. Thoroughly recommended. ”
