    It is great when your kid can recommend books to you.

    An amazing series of novels.  So satisfying to find a realistically grim and dismal YA novel.  Proves once again that the golden age of SF is between 8 and 16.

    Does she eat her sister’s meatloaf and then exclaim “It tastes like ashes!”

    Because that’s kind of become my yard stick on astral body collision disaster movies.

    It was a really great book.

    I read it a few winters ago, and would always be reading it on the train to work with the snow billowing outside, and each time I would look up a half-hour later completely confused that there was still electricity outside and that the world wasn’t ending.

    Everyone else I know who read it had the exact same reaction. One woman said she had to read it in a hot bath to keep the coldness away, but as she would read her bath would get colder and colder, and she’d be shivering in spite of herself, certain that endless winter was setting in.

    It’s fun to read the 1-star reviews. Apparently, Conservatives aren’t fond of the book, to put it mildly. Teehee. Think I’ll buy it right now.

    My 11-year old just read this for a class project. How cool is her middle school? We swap YA fiction all the time. I love learning from my kids.
