"One of my favorite stories from my childhood, and I read it again as an adult. Haven't yet gotten the kids to read it as they are more swayed by all the glitzy new novels, but still one of my favorites."
"I think this series is now up to book 7 or 8 with the recent publication of 'Angel', and we (myself and daughters) have gobbled them up as they've come out. My 9 year old has even gotten into it with both the manga version as well as reading the novels. Who wouldn't like the idea of kids that can fly destined to save the world?"
"This is the only apocalyptic series I'll have on the list because it is worth the time, and she is very skilled at handling the darker notions of this type of society so that it comes across as PG and mostly as the background for a great tale rather than being the tale. All three books are worth the read and spellbinding."
"My 11 year old adored this book so much that I've already pre-ordered the other two in the series. A great adventure story for pre-teen girls with an old fashioned PG (or G rated) romance...wholesome and a great read."
