An Amazon Best Book of February 2016: An alchemical collusion—and sometimes collision—between the forces of magic and science, Anders’ novel swirls together fantasy and sci-fi into an often absurd but never slight modern tale of a witch and a tech genius who grow up together, grow apart, and finally have to save the world. This book throws a lot at the reader: coming-of-age and real adulthood, talking cats and two-minute time machines, assassins and venture capitalists, hilarity and hefty philosophy, technology and Nature. But Anders’ clever writing propels the story through its twists and turns, delivering a mesmerizing, thoughtful, and poignant novel that has “award winner” written all over it. --Adrian Liang --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From School Library Journal
Social outcasts Patricia and Laurence have been friends since they were young, when they dodged cafeteria food that was thrown at them. But when Laurence, a supercomputing genius, finds out that Patricia can talk to birds, even he isn't sure if their friendship will last. Fast forward a few years and Laurence is working for a billionaire who wants to create a machine that allows for intergalactic travel to save humans after they have destroyed their own world. Patricia, meanwhile, has honed her magic skills at a witch academy and is now wandering the city healing people when she isn't supposed to. With the help of smart devices, Patricia and Laurence find love, but the looming end of the world tests their relationship. Give to readers who don't mind a bit of quirky romance like Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park mixed in with their fast-paced Daniel H. Wilson-esqe futuristic science fiction. Patricia and Laurence are awkward, lovable, smart, and dorky, and readers will cheer for them to save the world hand in hand. VERDICT Perfect for fans of The Big Bang Theory, this novel has plenty of appeal for readers of fantasy, science fiction, and apocalyptic fiction.—Sarah Hill, Lake Land College, Mattoon, IL --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

But hey, I still loved the story. It echoed themes from "Romeo and Juliet." Two people from polar worlds brought together by love, tragedy... you get the gist. The contrast of the magic realm and the science world is a very clever tactic. I did feel a little deceived about the time-travel element listed in EVERY description of the book. It's in the book, but there's no real follow through.
Either way, it's still worth the read! I could definitely see this as a film. Check it out.
Despite a few little flaws, this is nearly a five star read. If you don't mind a faux-indie romcom interrupting your apocalyptic science-fantasy, this might be great for you.
3 stars instead of more because the world and secondary characters were very two-dimensional. Everything that was revealed and every character's actions were there to further the story of the main characters - there was no sense of lives outside of what was going on with the plot. The entire world felt claustrophobic, as nothing seemed real outside of those two and their relationship.
