Reviews

★ This Secret Garden retelling . . . works beautifully in its new space setting. . . . The storytelling is immersive and engrossing, touching on environmental issues, class structure and prejudice, and the struggle to find one's truest self. Readers will be eager for the next installment in this marvelous, magical universe.--Booklist, Starred Review

Twelve-year-old Myra's about as scrappy and inspired as they come, and readers will likely be eager to see what she does next. .--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Debut author Barry smoothly incorporates contemporary--and perhaps perennial--issues of elite education, pressure to succeed, corporate corruption, class divides, systemic prejudice, and environmental depredation while delivering a boarding school story in a believable off-world setting. . . Nicely realized, intriguingly complex, and well set up for sequels.--Kirkus Reviews
