Alright, enough rambling, the Bottom Line is this is a well written book in a journal format (format not for everyone thus the 4 stars for that adult themes in a youth science fiction) that has enough suspense and nostalgia in it to keep an adult flipping pages and a tween dreaming of grandeur for several nights. That said, there is some adult thematic content - - about sex - - that should lead to some very interesting dialogue with your tween.
Candy is 11 years old, a genius, and the next step UP in mankind's evolution. Her adopted father has prepared in case of emergencies of apocalyptic proportion and this is her truncated journal of the happenings after those events.
The story tells of her adventures along with friends (including a feathered one) as she tries to find other survivors.
A unique plot idea, lots of action, great characters. Fun, fun.
I understand that Palmer did write a sequel called "Tracking." It was published in three separate issues of Analog Science Fiction magazine in 2008 but I can't see that it ever came out in book form. Too bad - I sure would have bought it.
I deeply regret that Mr. Palmer has only written two books.
