“A highly pertinent, engaging thriller.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Wells is a veteran author whose home turf is science fiction, and his fans will recognize and appreciate his style, while newcomers will appreciate the humor and compulsive readability. Grab this, along with Wells’ other novels, for any collection.” (ALA Booklist)

“Variant should join the ranks of today’s must-read science fiction and fantasy series. A highly recommended addition to any collection for teens.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review))
“Benson’s account unfolds in a speedy, unadorned first person. Hard to put down from the very first page, this fast-paced novel answers only some of the questions it poses, holding some of the most tantalizing open for the next installment in a series that is anything but ordinary.” (Kirkus Reviews)

This story is told from the viewpoint of a teenager who's father works for NASA. I found myself asking those questions and thinking about the way the author handled it.
I enjoyed the book very much.
This is written for teenagers and up. It does make brief reference to suicide, murder, and reproduction both human and alien. I probably wouldn't recommend it for younger than 12 years old or anyone hypersensitive to the mention of those things.
