"The End" kept me entertained till, well, the end! I don't usually read GLBT books, but I've been on a post-apocalyptic kick lately and this book fit the bill. The magic in the story is portrayed in such a natural, easy way that it all seems very realistic and believable somehow. Olsen is a talented writer. I look forward to reading her future books!

I thought that this book was going to be weirder than it was. As soon as I opened it and started reading I just couldn't stop. I brought it with me to every class and even recomended to one or two of my friends. I like how Julia, Skilly, Marly, Ginger and Vikki make it through thier tough times by working together even though they don't always get along. I'd like to thank our librarian for introducing me to this program and this may be my first review but i plan on doing more

Format: Paperback
This book was a real treat. I will pretty much read anything that has lesbian characters in it, so that means a lot of romances and coming out stories. This book goes beyond all that. Yes, there are teen lesbian characters in this book, but they're not sitting around wondering what to do about being gay, they're out there wondering how they can stop World War Three. They've been given magic amulets with no user manual, and it's up to them to figure it out from there.

I found the characters in this book incredibly realistic. That might sound like an odd thing to say about a story that involves magic and time travel. But these girls are not swashbuckling superheroes. They are ordinary people who are given an extraordinary challenge. I mean, what would you do if the world was being destroyed, and you were tossed an amulet and told to fix it?

My favorite characters were Julia and Marly. I found Marly's struggle with gender issues very interesting. But at the end of the day, it was the one male character Skilly that made me think the most. What would it REALLY mean to live forever? Would I make the choices that he made? I think that the end of his storyline was a real surprise. I hope there is a sequel, I want to know what happens next!

I can totally see this turning into one of those Harry Potter type books that are billed for teens but appeal to a grown-up audience too. All in all, highly recommended.

Olsen has more than a way with words. She paints pictures that are so vivid and distinct, that you can't help but practically fall madly in love with her characters so you can't wait to find out more. You are thrown head first into the worlds she creates and I find it hard to ever want to leave. This is just the first of I'm sure many books that will be published in the future. Keep your eye out on this author and you'll be glad you did.
