The Craft
I found this story a little confusing - the actions and reasoning in the story are those you would expect from a child, yet the characters are mostly aged adults. Some of the themes (or interplay) are somewhat adult-ish , which sort of implies this is not a book for young teenagers. I think most High School students could tell you that you don't point a spaceship at the moon (or mars) and go for it - you aim for where it will be after the elapsed time to get there (and that is simplified).
It is not the sort of story you feel comfortable reading as there are so many points that are unrealistic (a child's fantasy, or someone how has never grown up). I think the overall idea is cool, just the meat doesn't hold together.
