Reviews

"Readers who like to tinker and dream will be the best audience for this tongue-in-cheek tale, in which the lines between imagination and reality are intriguingly blurred."

"[L]ively and realistic, bouncing between mock scientific jargon and exasperated brother-speak … a good choice for young science-fiction fans."
