This is a reread. My first encounter with this book was nearly 30 years ago. I loved it then, and have a greater affinity for it now. It is somewhat autobiographical for the sci-fi author, and quite out of his "norm" of writing. It shows that good writers have a talent for all genres.

This book was lent to me by a student, and I am captivated. It is written in poetry and tells a beautiful story.

You will find that most of the literature I read for enjoyment is written for teenagers, and this book is no exception. When I read the first page, I had chills and was hooked. While I normally don't read scary stuff, this is great! It is also a Lonestar Book this year.

This is a book about what it really means to "read closely." It is not intended for pleasure, but it is enjoyable and serves the purpose of helping me be a better teacher by being a better learner.
