FAIR COIN is a well-constructed, fast-paced science-fiction adventure that starts with an interesting premise and expands it into something even more complex and affecting. Author E.C. Myers does an excellent job of capturing the voices and concerns of his cast of teen characters, grounding the narrative in genuine emotion and behavior while executing some very skillful plotting.
