Reviews
"Readers will find multiple points for empathy and reflection in this intriguing take on what-if."--The Children's Bulletin
"A shining debut. Smart, tender, heartbreaking, triumphant. In a World Just Right is a miracle."--Julie Berry, author of the award-winning ALL THE TRUTH THAT'S IN ME
"Elements of science fiction, mystery, and romance combine in a well-paced story that still manages a surprising conclusion...A thoughtful story that still feels fresh amid the many other sci-fi/romance combinations out there."--School Library Journal
"Jonathan is the best kind of main character any story could want; he is sympathetic, flawed, and is as surprised as the reader by how events unfold...Every piece of the puzzle that is this book slides into the exact right spot, forming a picture-perfect work of fiction."--VOYA, STARRED REVIEW
"Coping with devastating loss and near-death tragedy takes many forms, and, in Brooks' caring narrative, an appreciation for the rationale for world making is made to feel just right."--Booklist
