MOLLY MOON, MICKY MINUS, AND THE MIND MACHINE is the fourth book in the Molly Moon series, and it's a fast-paced, harrowing, wild ride. Georgia Byng has a terrific imagination: The characters, their outfits, and how the world looks in the future are all so detailed that readers will be delighted and horrified at the same time.

On the minus side, there's so much information to absorb, yet the quick tempo doesn't give readers much time to pause and really process it. Much like Molly, readers will feel out of sorts and rushed, though they will truly enjoy when Molly rises up and meets the challenges that had her on the ropes. All in all, this is a great read.
