Reviews

Comparison's to Lois Lowry's The Giver and Jeanne DuPrau's City of Ember will be inevitable, and though Kidd's novel may not be quite as epic in scope, it will likely still entice new generations of middle-grade readers.--Booklist Online


Kidd tells an enjoyable story that features both appealing protagonists and well-presented ideas about the importance of creativity and following one's dreams.--Publishers Weekly


Kidd's spare prose winds around dialogue and description, creating images for readers as vivid as Jeremy's dreams. Short sentences will speed reluctant readers through the text. This read-alike of Lois Lowry's The Giver and Jeanne DuPrau's The City of Ember will make for meaty group discussion.
