I loved this book! An interesting and unique premise ... the emphasis
these days on issues affecting the earth is global warming, but this was a
disaster not commonly considered- our planet's rotation starts to slow and the days get increasingly longer. Multiple hours of daylight are followed by multiple hours of darkness, wreaking havoc on wildlife, vegetation and the human psyche.
I liked the fact that it was from the point of view of an 11-year-old girl. It really is a coming of age story, and I could relate to the other characters as well. I encouraged my own 11-year-old daughter to read it, and she couldn't put it down.
Walker has a nice, easy to read writing style - descriptive, but not overly so - looking forward to reading more from her!
