By OneZero on December 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
I found the story rather predictable - I had the story arc pretty much figure out by 1/3 of the book. However, the backdrop and the characters are very well done and Baxter's prose kept my interest. And though the story is supposedly "YA", Baxter doesn't sugarcoat anything....

I'd recommend this to older teens as well as adults who haven't read quite so many alternate universe tales as I have.

Format: Paperback
For pre teen and teenage girls, a good morality tale and "wheels of if" sci-fi -- by Stephen Baxter, one of sci-fi's steller writers. Adults can read it, too, without boredom.

Format: Hardcover
This was an engrossing and quick read. It's a young adult historical fiction sci-fi that follows a 14 year old girl in England during the Cuban missile crisis. What if the worst had happened during the crisis? The book toys with this notion in a very suspenseful way. The reader is left wondering if the apocalypse will come to be or not as events unfold in the book. This is a little different from Baxter's hard sci-fi (I'm thinking Vacuum Diagrams and others from the Xeelee sequence), but I really enjoyed the book and had trouble putting it down. Good read!
