Reviews

"Starglass is a richly imagined, beautifully written book. It's science fiction, mystery, and coming of age story all wrapped into one; creative but also firmly grounded in a real human experience, with all its loss, pain, and disillusionment--but also beauty, hope, and belonging. A wonderful story."--Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Divergent
"Starglass is a poignantly written, gripping tale. I just loved it. I really enjoyed the political intrigue, the depth of the characters, the suspense, and the twists and turns, all with the backdrop of space and interstellar travel, which I love. It all felt so original. I can't wait for the sequel."--James Dashner, New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner series
"Immersive and compelling, Starglass is sci-fi with both brains and heart. Terra's search for belonging and authentic human connection is one to savor."--Lenore Appelhans, author of The Memory of After
"Murder, rebellion, and spaceships done right: Phoebe North's Starglass gave me the best kind of chills. I can't wait to see what the sequel has in store."--Jodi Meadows, author of Incarnate
* "This richly textured first novel deserves to be widely read."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"A poignantly lovely frame story about leaving Earth and a lonely kid seeking something to invest in."--Kirkus Reviews
"With its onion-skin layers of plots and subterfuge around issues of trust and loyalty--not to mention a very strong writing style--this stellar debut should have strong interest from dystopian fans. Hand to fans of Maria V. Snyder or Beth Revis."--Booklist
"While there are certainly strong science-fiction overtones and dystopian influences, the claustrophobic nature of the ship grounds the characterization. This book offers an excellent resource to support diversity as marriage equality and LGBT issues are a dominant factor in the narrative, making it more interesting than many similar titles."--School Library Journal
* "This absorbing page-turner [avoids] the clichéd extremes of much recent young adult science fiction...Terra herself is equal parts strength and vulnerability, neither preternaturally heroic nor innately naïve. Genuinely surprising revelations near the end and a lack of resolution suggest probable sequels to this first-rate science fiction novel, a worthy successor for Revis' Across the Universe."--BCCB, starred review
