Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Sometimes two books is just enough; rather than stretch the story to three volumes, author Amy Plum has the sense to wrap things up in a couple of strong volumes. Alternating as narrators, Miles and Juneau spend the first half of the book reacquainting themselves with their new abilities and feelings for each other. The action ramps up at the midpoint, and the showdown between Juneau's clan and the hired guards of a deranged millionaire is exciting and well-choreographed.

The science behind Juneau and Miles' powers is not at all realistic, but most readers are not likely to mind, as they will be engaged by the gritty and sometimes witty road trip of survival.
