STONE IN THE SKY proves to be a satisfying follow-up to Tin Star, expanding the first book's scope and deepening the characterization of protagonist Tula Bane. The world building is well thought-out, and the mix of alien species provides plenty of conflict. Sometimes it seems a little convenient that, with an entire galaxy in which to wander, characters are able to reunite so easily. Most readers won't notice, though, as they'll be engrossed in the exciting plot and compelling character moments.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
