I agreed to review this because I thought it would be a great book for our homeschool reading--we're not finished with it yet and I promised I'd have something up by October 13.
The book is being talked about as a sci-fi story for everyone, not just children, in the vein of Madeleine L'Engle, Lewis, and Tolkein. How could I not agree to review it??
You'll be hearing from me soon on this one. And maybe I can teach that son of mine to write reviews?
Here's the first chapter if you're interested.
