User Review  - Eileen Divringi - Goodreads

Beautifully written - you can tell the author is also a poet. It felt a little slow at a couple points for me, but really picked up in the last third. If lefty sci-fi is in your wheelhouse, you'll definitely enjoy this. Read full review

User Review  - Danika Dinsmore - Goodreads

I loved parts of this book and thought others dragged on too long. There was a lot of talking and exposition where I suddenly felt like I was stuck inside Piercy's "What I did on my Summer Vacation ... Read full review
