As a hopeless romantic, I can't help but love a happy ending. I enjoyed the part where the wrong Brewer fixed the car and I thought the relationship between Maggie and her grandmother was endearing. I would have loved to see more of the relationship between Maggie and Sydney as it was first developing in order to gain more of an attachment to them. I thought the connection you made between Sydney and the grandmother at the end of the story (with the Baby Ruth's) was a nice touch.
I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the main character, Marcus: A man with no family or friends who put everything into his job. Marcus faces a difficult decision that not only cost the lives of many refugees, in what Marcus considered mercy killings, but he loses his job and is shunned by the masses. I don’t want to give the whole story away but it is definitely a worthwhile read! The author really had me thinking about what life might be like 32 years from now with its elaborate caste system and universal/omniscient control system called “The Cloud.” A little unnerving.
Easy to read with predictable text. Readability is about the end of first grade to the beginning of second. This was a cute story overall, about a girl named Georgia and her dog named Totty who thought he was human. I'm not sure why, but for some reason the end of the story didn't feel like the end but I couldn't put my finger on why.
