About the Author
When Remmy’s dog, his best friend, was out playing, a truck’s bumper hit her in the head and killed her instantly. Remmy went out with a blanket and picked the dog up. Before he reached the house, he had a heart attack. The doctors said that, had it not been for his swimming and bike riding, he would have died. Complications set in, Remmy’s blood circulation was not right, and they were going to amputate his legs. His legs were saved but he was wheelchair bound, never to walk more than a few feet again. It took three years of retraining, and technicians to even get him to do that. At that point, Remmy sat in front of his computer for the first time in years for more than an hour. He stared at the screen, and almost gave up. He read a story on the internet about boys and said to himself, “That is bull! That is not what boys talk or act like,” that’s when Remmy began to write. He spends his time writing, playing a few online games with friends and watching the best movies he can get, and listens to music. Remmy sleeps about twelve hours on and off each day. We hope you enjoy his work as much as we do. ~Remmy’s friends and fans

This book by Remmy Meggs has action, twists and humour as he takes us on Airs adventure that will have you thinking about our young Earth and indeed the origin of our species. Science and religion are mixed together and you will be left intrigued with the outcome.
This is the third book I have read by Mr. Meggs and this book has a different tone than his first two. This, and his other books, will keep your attention to the very end and I can assure you that the ending of this one will be a surprise to the reader. Highly recommended purchase.
Air is a boy who is different and this causes trouble in his tribe. He is joined by friends who stood up for him. The characters in the book are very well defined and relatable. In their journey throughout Pangaea, they meet many different groups. These meetings are important both for Air and his friends as much as for those they encounter.
The artwork on the cover is very bold and will draw the readers interest. There is also an added bonus on the back of the paperback which is a 3-D picture sure to give some readers a scare. This book will thrill younger, but it was written with young adults (13 and older) in mind. As an adult I loved this book.
This book should be a valuable addition to your child’s collection. It is filled with adventures and interesting characters, both human and animal. I give this 5 stars out of 5.
Strong characters lead the way and one in particular stands out. A young boy called Air who doesn't rise to the expectations of his tribe. Many heroes have started out differently from their peers, Air is no exception, he doesn't fit in and is intriguing from the start.
Different tribes are drawn in as Air and his friend’s battle to survive against the odds presented by their challenging environment and greater challenges heading their way. Air's friends also learn of his connections with all living creatures and must learn to accept him as he is. Not so simple for everybody they meet. Air isn’t affected by what people think, rather what is coming. Although, Remmy Meggs keeps us guessing at the specifics of that far into the story.
I enjoyed reading 'Saving Tomorrow' although the writer in me wanted to push it along occasionally. Some of the pitfalls of writing a long story came to light with the odd inconsistency but these don’t interfere with readability.
Regardless of technicalities, this was a great story from a writer I sense will go far. He can certainly tell a great story. If I could award stars for writing and storytelling separately I give four and five respectively. I can't do that here so I give a well-deserved four stars.
