The other day I received one of my favorite reviews ever, and I just have to share!
Jenny of Books, Babies, and Bows reviewed The Universes Inside the Lighthouse for me, at my request. The review she gave was not just a good review (as in a 5* review, which it was), but also a thorough, thoughtful, beautifully done review. She even pulled some quotes from my book and made them into fancy pinterest-worthy images! I’ve included the first part of her review below; for the full review, see her site.
Pam Stucky’s book The Universes Inside the Lighthouse was a delightful surprise for me. As a scientist, I usually stray away from science fiction because when it isn’t done well, it leaves me screaming at the books; however this book was extremely intelligently written. I actually stayed up late on several nights because I couldn’t put the book down. The premise of the book, on the surface, appears to be far fetched, but trust me, read the book and discover an adventure of a lifetime. The characters in the story are well developed and the overall plot lays the foundation for a series of books to come in this Balky Point Adventure series.
In particular, I found myself scribbling notes in the margins of the book because there were so many quotes from the book that spoke to me. The story reminds me of A Wrinkle in Time, but for a much older audience. After reading the book, I think it would be best suited for 10 and older. I tried to read it with my eight-year-old, but the concepts in the book were too abstract for her to understand. I think in a couple years, she will be ready and eager to read this book. I will be sending this book to my niece, who is a couple years older than Miss M, to see what she thinks as a young reader.
Read the rest here. Thank you, Jenny!!
