Thank you for the reminder to put this on hold at my library!

Given the age range and the lack of too-graphic violence or romance, I'd call this Middle Grade rather than YA, but that's because I'm a pedant. Great review.

Sounds like fun. I can't really see why one should complain about this while still counting Ray Bradbury as an SF writer. :)

(Gotta write that Middle Earth space program scenario one of these days. Can't get to Valinor by sea, but how about from orbit?)

Or Lensman, or well, any SF book with psionics in it.

Pretty sure Bradbury had psi in some of his stories, along with ghosts, vampires, witches and electric grandmothers. :)

A bit of warning - what looks like the beginning of the book is actually a spoileriffic intro by Rick Riordan that goes into details of what James glossed over. Skip it if, like me, you prefer to find out what happens in the first few chapters yourself.

I have it on pre-order, having enjoyed Yoon' Machineries of Empire series. It is reassuring to read your review.
