Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Eighteen-year-old Izzy Poole's mother died when she was young, and her father drowned his grief in alcohol. Just before her high school graduation, she learns she is pregnant by her emotionally unstable art teacher. Confronted with the prospect of raising her baby alone, Izzy joins a research study that promises support for her and her son. Dr. Preston Grind, a famous child psychologist, has created the Infinite Family Project. For 10 years, 10 babies and their parents will live in a complex. The adults will raise the children together as a collective family while pursuing their professional goals, with all living expenses covered by an eccentric benefactor; however, none of the children will know who their biological parents are. While many of the participants find the setup strange, the project is successful for a long time. But when the utopian arrangement begins to fall apart, Izzy is faced with the fear of once again being without a family. Teens will identify with Izzy's complicated relationship with her father and her hopes and fears for the future. What makes this story stand out is the questions it raises about current family structures as well as the benefits and drawbacks of the "it takes a village" approach to raising children. VERDICT Recommend this engaging, thought-provoking novel to teens interested in psychology or family studies.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD

Review

''Stellar. . . . Compelling. . . . Realer and wiser and sadder and eventually reassuring about human nature than dozens of other novels.'' (Booklist, Starred Review)

''Bittersweet. . . . Wilson delves into the drama and tensions inherent in this strange aquarium. . . . A moving and sincere reflection on what it truly means to be a family.'' (Kirkus (Starred Review))

''Sweet and thoroughly satisfying. . . . Wilson grounds his premise in credible human motivations and behavior, resulting in a memorable cast of characters.'' (Publishers Weekly)

''[A] moving novel about love, parenting, and the families we create for ourselves.'' (Library Journal)

''Wilson's creative and funny novel examines two young lives in the process of getting skewed, all in the pursuit of art with a capital A.'' (Entertainment Weekly)

''Inventive and hilarious. This is complex psychological ground . . . Wilson navigates it with a calm experience.'' --(Wall Street Journal)
