5.0 out of 5 stars Great characters, setting and plot, December 31, 2014
Piracy is still piracy. Addiction still devastates. Absolute power still corrupts absolutely. And still there are heroes bound to set things right. But wait. Who are the heroes? The mutineer? The man who decides disloyalty is the honorable course? The bitter pilot and her brutal boyfriend. All of them? Hang on for the ride; this tale rockets at warp speed, and leaves you panting for the sequel like a slavering Hroom. Great story telling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the perfect pan of brownies..., October 18, 2011
brownies with chewy edges and centers that melt just so on your tongue, nuggets of walnut here and there. Your third grader devours them with cold milk; you nibble, savoring the subtle richness of flavor and texture. How David Met Sarah is just the same, except less fattening.

Annie Kelleher's luscious novel is both compelling and gentle, told with artful simplicity, technicolored with images of poetic precision.

If a child or adult with Down syndrome approaches you on a sidewalk or in a corridor, their distinctively rounded features wreathed in smiles, do you shy your eyes away to avoid contact?
After reading How David Met Sarah, you never will again. Instead you will think of David - his courage, his vulnerability, his sweet soul - and you will have to smile back, perhaps earn a hug, and go on your way feeling just a little blessed.
