This little book just got better and better. It's good, old-fashioned science fiction, the kind that's just perfect for curling up with.
With a ten-year old hero, I guess the book qualifies as YA or middle grade. But it kept my interest all the way through, with good, complex characters, and a story-line busy enough for the adult mind. The space station setting is accurate and rich, portrayed quite well through the story, without pages and pages of exposition to "describe" everything.
There are a few typos in the early chapters, but I didn't notice any later on. Perhaps I just got too much into the story!

A great coming-of-age story! There's not nearly enough hopeful forward-looking human-meets-aliens science fiction out there, so I was glad to see this on the store shelves (as it were).
Some parts seem a little sketchy, and it seems implausible that terrorists would use publicly available videogames as instruction manuals - far more likely that they'd serve as indoctrination - but on the whole, I look forward to seeing more in this universe.
