"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Amy is given a pendant on her 14th birthday by other series character, Muce, a cousin. She finds that it's not just a pretty piece of jewelry but a key to a world so different from her own. Everything she knew as a child was incorrect.
Is Amy like Alice? Is she like Dorothy? Is she like whatever the girls names are from the Narnia series? You could say that Amy is a bit like all of them while remaining completely unlike any of them. Amy is brave, smart and caring. Set in a medieval kind of world, the story follows a desperate Amy as she tries to better the fortunes of her family when her aunt suggests that the pendant might lead to treasure. In actual fact, Amy is led to a world she could not have imagined graced with artificial intelligence.
I loved "Amy's Pendant" and thought it the perfect novel for the tween market. The setting is other-worldly to modern kids. Amy's grandparents house is a 4 hour walk away and the gaining of formal education and use of libraries depend on how much money a person has to spend. Food isn't bought at the market but traded for other goods and services. When Amy gets trapped in the other worldly place, Mark Seven, the Project Manager, must be sure she doesn't escape and tell others. She understands she won't survive trapped as she is so must rely on her newly re-animated friends to help her solve the mystery of returning to her world. When one of her friends is hurt, she takes the chance of not returning to save him.
Amy is a great example for young girls and a fun character to read. If you have a reader 9 to 180, I would suggest this novel for them. It's fun, fresh and recalls the great novels of a parent's youth.
